Health Minister to Continue Pop-Up Vaccination Clinics

Pop-up walk-in vaccination clinics will continue throughout August and into September, Health Minister Robin Swann has stressed.

In addition, an expanding number of community pharmacies are offering Moderna vaccine first dose appointments in Northern Ireland.

A series of localised walk-in clinics are confirmed for this week (see details below). Further initiatives to boost take-up are also planned in the coming weeks.

The Minister stated: “The walk-in clinics continue to be effective at reaching people. Encouragingly, this shows that there is still demand for vaccination. We will continue to work hard to keep increasing the take-up rate. As well as protecting more people from the virus, this will also support our hospitals during what will be an extremely difficult autumn and winter.”

The pop-up walk-in clinics provide first vaccine doses to everyone aged 16 plus. No appointment is needed.

In addition, 16 and 17 year olds can get Pfizer first jabs – without appointments – at NI’s regional vaccination centres.

Anyone aged 18 and over can book a Moderna first dose appointment at participating community pharmacies. The number of participating pharmacies in NI offering appointments now stands at 34 and this will be increased further by this weekend.

NI’s Covid-19 vaccine dashboard shows that over 6,500 16 and 17 year olds have already come forward for their first dose.
