THE Northern Trust has published the dates of their COVID-19 booster clinics and is encouraging all those eligible to take up their booster as Omicron numbers surge across Northern Ireland.

The Department of Health have advised that unvaccinated individuals aged 50 and over are almost 30 times as likely to be admitted to hospital with COVID-19 when compared to fully vaccinated individuals who have also received their booster or third dose.

The Trust have advised that while pop up clinics may be established to meet specific needs, there are no plans to continue the clinics outside of Ballymena beyond next week so anyone who wishes to get their vaccine locally should book it now.

The Trust is recommending that people book as it assists them in maximising capacity but clinics accept walk ins as long as people are patient and prepared to wait.

Anyone who wishes to walk in should come well before the clinic finishes.
