RESIDENTS of Carrickmore and surrounding areas have this week the opportunity to get their first dose Covid vaccine this Thursday (July 22) when the Western Trust host a pop-up vaccination clinic at The Milestone Centre.
The clinic, which will run from 4pm to 8pm, will operate on a first come, first served basis, with a limited number of slots available. The mobile clinic will administer first jabs of the Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine only.
Anyone wishing to take advantage of the clinic and receive their first jab should bring along photographic ID, proof of address and their Health and Care Number (HCN) if possible.
Meanwhile, locals who are working or are busy during the day will also have the opportunity to visit the mass vaccination centre at Omagh Leisure Centre on Thursday evening which will remain open until 8pm.
This walk-in clinic at Omagh Leisure Centre will administer first dose Pfizer Covid-19 vaccines, or second dose Pfizer vaccines for anyone who missed their original appointment.
The roll out is part of ongoing efforts by the Western Trust to encourage people aged over 18 years old to get vaccinated by making the vaccination process more accessible and convenient.
