Callback clinics established in the Northern Trust area

The Northern Trust has released the dates for its COVID-19 recall clinics and is encouraging all eligible to take their recall as the number of Omicron increases in Northern Ireland.

The health ministry said unvaccinated people aged 50 and older are nearly 30 times more likely to be admitted to hospital with COVID-19 than fully vaccinated people who have also received their booster or boost. third dose.

The Trust said that while pop-up clinics can be created to meet specific needs, there are no plans to continue clinics outside Ballymena beyond next week, so anyone who wishes to check out to be vaccinated locally must reserve it now.

The Trust recommends that people book because it helps them maximize capacity, but clinics accept walk-in visits as long as people are patient and willing to wait.

Anyone wishing to enter must present themselves well before the end of the clinic.
