The vaccination clinic at the Valley Leisure Centre opens tomorrow (Friday, December 17) at 9.30am.

Those eligible are encouraged to book online at covid-19.hscni.net/get-vaccinated/ to allow the Northern Health and Social Care Trust to maximise resources. First and second doses will also be provided to those eligible.

Anyone over the age of 30 is now suitable for a Covid booster provided they are at least three complete months from the date of their second dose.

Anyone attending should bring personal ID. This can include passport, driving licence, bus pass, carer’s card or bring a document that confirms your name and address such as an electric/gas/phone bill.
