The Department of Health today announced that Northern Ireland’s COVID-19 vaccination centres are now offering first dose appointments to everyone aged 18 and over, as part of the drive to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible.  Community pharmacies continue to be available to book a vaccination slot for those aged 40 years and over. Due to the additional availability of the Pfizer vaccine to all age cohorts through Trust centres, community pharmacies will no longer be offering vaccination to under 40s at this

To book online go to: https://covid-19.hscni.net/get-vaccinated/(external link opens in a new window / tab)

For those who cannot book online, appointments can also be made using the telephone service 0300 200 7813.

You should not book if you already have a vaccination appointment with your GP or community pharmacy.  The Trust-run vaccination centres are located at: SSE Arena, Belfast; Foyle Arena, Derry/Londonderry; Omagh Leisure Centre; Lakeland Forum, Enniskillen; South Lake Leisure Centre, Craigavon; Seven Towers Leisure Centre, Ballymena; and Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast.

Some appointment slots are still available at the centres for this weekend and we are today opening a fresh batch of slots for next week.

GPs have been asked to vaccinate their at risk patients, using the JCVI priority groups in order, and moving through these groups as vaccine supply allows.

To check if you are eligible for vaccination with the Trust please follow this link

Our phone lines are very busy and calls to enquire about when you will get the vaccine may prevent urgent calls being answered.
