College vaccine clinics open to the public

16/09/2021

Those who have not yet received a COVID vaccination will have an opportunity to do so next week at their local Higher Education campus, the Western Trust has announced.

Vaccination clinics are running at Third Level institutions across the region as part of the Jabbathon campaign, aimed primarily at students during their Freshers fortnight.

However, a select number of sites have also opted to open their doors to members of the public, and anyone aged 16+, who wishes to receive a first dose Pfizer jab.

Clinics will take place in Omagh, Derry/Londonderry and Enniskillen, giving a convenient option for those who may not have been able to attend for vaccination when their cohort was called, or indeed who may have changed their mind since then.

Details of the clinics are as follows:
