If you have symptoms of persistent cough, raised temperature, loss of taste or smell, you should stay at home and book a Covid test - telephone 119
UPDATE 03/06/21: We have recently been able to order additional vaccines and have sent invitations to all Over 50s, who have not yet had a vaccine, offering appointments at the Surgery.
There are no plans for GPs to continue with Covid Vaccination clinics after these, therefore you will need to book through the regional vaccine service.
If you are eligible, you can book your COVID-19 vaccination online.
The COVID-19 vaccination involves 2 injections, ten weeks apart. When you book your first appointment, you will also get a date for your second appointment. This will be at the same vaccination centre.
Before booking your appointment, you must read through the information provided to make sure it is safe for you to receive the vaccine.
You can find more information on the COVID-19 vaccine at: https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/covid-vaccine
If you are eligible, book your appointment at: https://vaccinations.covid-19.hscni.net/
You can also book your vaccination via telephone on 0300 200 7813 Monday to Friday, 8:00am to 8.00pm.
If you live in Northern Ireland and are entitled to treatment by the health service you can book a COVID-19 vaccination online if you have been invited to do so.
The invitation may have come from:
- public messages to the following groups:
- everyone over the age of 18
- those who are clinically extremely vulnerable aged 16 and over at 31st March 2021 and have a shielding letter
- those who have an underlying condition aged 16 -17 at 31st March , who have a GP letter.
- a letter from your hospital specialist or your GP
- an email or letter from your employer
If you have received multiple invitations, you only need to book once.
If you have received a letter from your GP inviting you to book a vaccination with them, you should contact them directly and not use this service to book your vaccination online.
Please note, you will be asked to show photo ID, proof of date of birth and your shielding letter (if this applies) when you arrive at the vaccination centre. If you are not in an eligible group, you will not be given your vaccination.
If you are in the underlying condition group you will need to bring your GP letter.
Following the latest advice from the JCVI it is preferable if people aged under 40 receive the Pfizer-BioNTech. In NI this will be accommodated through the regional Trust vaccination centres.
The JCVI has also advised that those aged under 40 may still make an informed choice to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine. More information regarding the latest JCVI statement can be found here.
Community Pharmacies are also offering the Covid vaccination. Check out their websites or social media pages.
