Covid 19: Vaccine now available for 30-34 year olds

The Covid 19 vaccine programme has opened up for a limited opportunity for 30-34 year olds in the North to get vaccinated.

Appointments are mainly available at the vaccine centre at the SSE Arena in Belfast and those eligible were able to book from 10am this morning. Participating community pharmacies will also be able to take appointments, but there is limited availability for this.

Health Minister Robin Swann said, “It is worth remembering the progress that our vaccination programme has made in a relatively short period of time. In less than five months we have vaccinated almost one million people and thousands of our citizens have been able to receive the vaccine well ahead of schedule.

“I know that we all long for a sustainable return to more normal times and vaccination offers the best hope for this. Uptake is very encouraging and I’m pleased that we are moving so quickly through the cohorts. We have a limited number of slots that we can now offer to those aged 30 to 34, so if you’re eligible I would urge you to step forward and take the opportunity to get the jab.”

If possible, booking should be done online at: covid-19.hscni.net/get-vaccinated/

However, where online booking is not possible, the telephone booking number is 0300 200 7813.
