Time is running out if you want to get your first dose Covid-19 vaccine at a walk-in clinic. Tomorrow Saturday you can get your first dose jab at The Quays Shopping Centre in Newry from 9am to 5pm.

Walk-in clinics run by health trusts have played a central role in NI’s vaccination programme. The next phase of the vaccination programme will see first doses provided by appointment at an expanded network of community pharmacies. A programme of trust-run second dose walk-in clinics will continue.

Patricia Donnelly, head of the NI vaccination programme, said: “Walk-in clinics have proved very popular and convenient, offering people the opportunity to get their jab at a local location without the need for an appointment.

“If you would prefer to get your first dose jab at a walk-in clinic and have been putting it off, then there are only limited opportunities left. So please don’t delay any longer.

“My thanks go to the vaccinator teams who have worked long and hard to make the walk-in clinics a success.

“The next phase of the vaccination programme is imminent, with booster doses and vaccinations in school settings fully up and running by early October. Walk-in mobile clinics for second doses will continue and 16 and 17 year olds will be able to get their first doses at these second dose clinics. Responsibility for providing first doses will pass to a large number of participating community pharmacies.”
