June 2021 Vaccination Appointment Update

Vaccine appointments are now available through vaccination centres and participating pharmacies.

Details about vaccine eligibility and how to book an appointment can found here.

Those currently eligible to book appointments at vaccination centres are

  • Those aged 18-24 at 31 July 2021
  • Health and social care workers (aged 30 or over at 30 April 2021)
  • Clinically extremely vulnerable (CEV) individuals (aged 16 years or over, must have shielding letter) – those aged 18 to 29 years who are yet to receive any vaccine are not eligible for vaccination through community pharmacy unless they are in the CEV category

To be vaccinated at a community pharmacy, you must be registered with a GP in Northern Ireland and in one of the eligible groups above.

Please note, those aged under 40 will be offered an alternative to the Astra Zeneca vaccine. Further information about this option can be found here.

You can book your vaccination centre appointment here.

Please do not book an appointment if you are not within these eligible categories. Proof of your eligibility will be checked at the vaccination centre and you will be refused entry if you are not in an eligible group.

  • You will receive a text/email message to confirm the time and date of your appointments.
  • When you arrive at the vaccination centre, you will be asked to show:
  • Proof of ID with a photograph (e.g. passport, bus pass, driving license, etc.)
  • Proof of your eligibility (e.g. your shielding letter; if you are not in an eligible group, you will not be given your vaccination.)
  • AND
  • Proof of your date of birth (e.g. birth certificate, passport, driving license, etc.)
  • Vaccination appointments will be extended to other groups in due course, in line with JVCI priorities.

Please do not contact your GP, and wait to be contacted by text, phone, or letter.

Even if you have received a vaccination, you must continue to observe social distancing guidelines and self-isolate if you come in contact with Covid-19. The vaccine is effective in fighting the virus, but does not eliminate your risk of infection or potential transmission.
