Children between the ages of 12-15 will be able to attend a walk-in vaccination clinic at the Grainger Market from this weekend.
Each Saturday, between 10am – 5pm, young people will be able to attend the market for a vaccine without an appointment. Previously, this age group could only be vaccinated in school or through appointments from the national booking system.
It is advised that children are with a parent or carer, but the on-site clinical will vaccinate young people who consent themselves, subject to a consultation.
The clinic will offer vaccines to everybody over the age of 12, not just children and young people.
