A walk-in vaccination clinic will take place at Ramsey Cottage Hospital later this week for 16 and 17 year olds.
The clinic will be open from 11am to 1pm on Saturday 28 August for teens wanting to receive the Pfizer vaccine.
There is no need to book in advance but anyone wishing to attend should ensure they are already registered with 111 via this link and bring proof of identification. Those who arrive and are not pre-registered with 111 will have to wait and risk not being vaccinated that day.
Young people aged 16 and 17 who are household contacts of an immunosuppressed person will be offered two doses of the vaccine in line with the adult rollout and will be invited to register in the coming days.
Additionally, 17-year-olds who are within three months of turning 18 will be offered a second dose appointment, this being confirmed shortly after their first dose.
All residents are encouraged to register for vaccination and attend appointments for increased protection against the virus and to reduce their risk of being hospitalised should they contract Covid.
