Mid Feb Update: COVID-19 vaccination for Chronic Disease patients 18-64 yrs

Updated: Mar 5


The Covid vaccination campaign continues to move quickly and we are pleased to let you know that we are now in a position to move beyond our over 70 year olds and Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) patients to our cohort of Chronic Disease patients aged 18-64 years. This should include those patients who are usually eligible for influenza vaccine.

We are currently inviting our patients by text message in descending age order. Please be assured that we will contact you and are working as quickly as possible to move through this group. Vaccine supply remains the main limiting factor.



Our clinics continue to take place in Knock Presbyterian Church (Kings Road entrance) and

we remain very thankful to them for the provision of this facility. These will take place on Thursday mornings for the most part, pending vaccine supply.

The Trust vaccination campaign continues to run alongside GP Practices. Many of our patients will find they are eligible, or have been invited for both. If this is the case, you are welcome to attend either venue, but do not attend both. GP Practices use Astra Zeneca (Oxford) vaccine and Trust vaccination centres currently use Pfizer vaccine. Both have demonstrated robust protection against COVID-19.

The Trust vaccination teams have opened their booking to 60-64 year olds and Carers. If you are the main carer of someone who is elderly or disabled and you are over 18, you can book directly with the Trust by phoning 0284372 1807 (South Eastern Trust) or 0289504 2126 (Belfast Trust)


If you are 60-64 years old you can phone 0300 200 7813 or book via the following link:


Finally, we would remind you to continue to adhere to Public Health guidance after vaccination as many in the population remain vulnerable to COVID-19.
