Young person vaccination clinic to open in city centre

Date Published:

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.
