NI vaccine booking: Limited slots open for those aged 30-34

Those aged 30-34 can book appointments from today

Northern Ireland's vaccine programme has announced they have some limited availability for those aged 30 to 34 to book a Covid-19 vaccine.

Appointments are mainly available at the vaccine centre at the SSE Arena in Belfast and those eligible will be able to book from 10.00am today.

Subject to vaccine availability, participating community pharmacies will also be able to take appointments.

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.”

People making bookings are asked to be patient, as demand for appointments will be strong. The ongoing roll-out of the vaccination programme will continue to be dependent on the availability of vaccine supplies.

Also going live today is a new Vaccination Management System (VMS) dashboard, which provides a greater level of detail about the vaccination programme. It replaces the previous manual system which relied on a variety of platforms with differing reporting mechanisms. Further information on the vaccine roll-out will be provided in the coming weeks, as the dashboard evolves.

In developing the VMS, some data may have been amended slightly upwards or downwards however the overall figures are consistent. This includes re-classifying a small percentage of first doses as second doses, reflecting the improved data accuracy of the new system.

In line with other dashboard reporting, the VMS will update at 2.00pm daily going forward.

If possible, booking for vaccines 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.
