COVID-19 Vaccination Programme in the Northern Trust

The COVID-19 Vaccination Programme in the Northern Trust has now completed its first dose phase at the Mass vaccination Centre and through Mobile Clinics.

Only those aged 16 and 17 can avail of a first dose vaccine in the Trust – more detail is provided below.

The vaccination being administered in the Northern Trust is the Pfizer vaccination.

Community pharmacies will continue to provide first dose vaccines for anyone who has not yet been vaccinated but would now like to take up the opportunity.  Further information as to participating pharmacies can be found on the  COVID-19 website for Northern Ireland.

 

Maternity vaccination clinics

COVID-19 vaccines are recommended in pregnancy by the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists. Vaccination is the best way to protect against the known risks of COVID-19 in pregnancy for both women and babies, including admission of the woman to intensive care and premature birth of the baby.

The maternity team has organised further vaccination clinics where those pregnant, recently delivered (within 28 days) or breastfeeding can avail of a first dose vaccine.

The final clinic will be held in Antrim Area Hospital on the following day from 9am – 1pm in Outpatients Level B:

  • Tuesday 26 October

Unless you have been advised otherwise, second doses will be provided at the Mass Vaccination Centre on a Wednesday from 9am – 5pm.

These will be the final maternity clinics to be held in the Trust.

 

Mass Vaccination Centre, Seven Towers Leisure Centre, Ballymena

Open 9am – 5pm Wednesday (closed for lunch between 12.30 – 1pm).

Walk in first-dose vaccinations are available for 16 and 17 year olds only.  Availability will fluctuate depending on the number of second dose appointments already scheduled.  Please bring personal ID with you.

The current JCVI guidance is that 16 and 17 year olds should only receive one dose.  Further advice on this is expected in due course.  There may be exceptions to this so if you are advised to get further doses, for example if you are clinically extremely vulnerable, please follow that advice.

Appointments and walk ins continue for second doses, provided you have reached the appropriate timescale between doses.

This is eight weeks for anyone vaccinated on 1 August and thereafter.

Mobile Vaccination Clinics for second doses

Those who previously received their first dose at a mobile clinic can return to the area for their scheduled second dose.
