THE Northern Trust has confirmed that their Mass Vaccination Centre at the Seven Towers Leisure Centre in Ballymena will be open this weekend as part of the regional 'Big Jab Weekend' promotion.
The drive involves Mass Vaccination Centres across Northern Ireland opening up to offer first dose vaccinations to all adult age groups.
The Centre in Ballymena will open on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 August from 9am to 5pm and will be the last chance for anyone aged 18 and over to get their first jab at a mass vaccination centre.
No appointment is required and those attending should bring photographic ID.
Those aged 16 and 17 will continue to be able to get their first vaccine at the mass vaccination centre from Mondays to Fridays.
In addition to the Mass Vaccination Centre, the mobile vaccination team will be in the Burnavon Centre in Cookstown on Sunday 22 and Monday 23 August and will administer the Pfizer vaccine to anyone over the age of 16.
Pop up clinics are also available in Antrim Area Hospital for pregnant women, those who have recently delivered and those still breastfeeding.
