WHERE + WHEN | There’s still time to get boosted before Christmas


The Department of Health is encouraging all adults eligible for their booster to get the jab at one of the many vaccination clinics in operation this week.


From the beginning of this week, those aged over 18 who received their second dose at least three months ago, can now take up the opportunity to get boosted.


The programme has seen a sharp acceleration in recent weeks with latest figures showing that more than 50% of those eligible for their booster have now received it.



The Department of Health announced today, Tuesday 21 December, over 700,000 boosters and 3rd doses have been administered across Northern Ireland.


Vaccination teams working in Trusts, pharmacies and GPs have worked hard to provide the population with this strengthened protection and will continue to do so with clinics operating throughout Northern Ireland in the lead up to Christmas Day.

Details of opening hours for the week ahead are listed below. While walk-in options are available, booking is encouraged:

Boosters are also being provided by GPs and community pharmacies. A new feature on the online booking platform gives you instant information on vaccination clinics near you.


You can type in your postcode or town and find out about all the Trust and pharmacy clinics close to your home.
