Covid Vaccinations take to the road as there is a probable increase in Delta variant cases in the Newcastle and Castlewellan area.
The South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust is rolling out pop-up vaccination clinics in Castlewellan and Newcastle.
A spokesperson for the Trust said: “This is part of a Northern Ireland-wide drive to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible. Booking is not required for the mobile clinics which will deliver the Moderna vaccine. Further clinics are being planned for different locations in the coming days and weeks.
“The vaccination drive is continuing amid the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant with a number of probable cases identified in the Castlewellan area.
“You can visit the vaccination buses on these times:
Castlewellan: Castlewellan Community Centre, 32 Circular Road, Castlewellan, on 3 July 2021 from 11.00am – 7.00pm .
Newcastle: 4 July 2021 in Newcastle, Donard Park Car Park beside entrance to O’Hares/The Haven from 11.00am – 7.00pm.
“Our staff will be there and ready to vaccinate everyone over 18 years of age with the Moderna vaccine.
“The pop-up clinic will then return six weeks later to deliver the second vaccination in the same place and at the same time.
“Those attending for vaccination must bring photographic ID or proof of address and where possible a Health & Care number.
