Community pharmacy Covid-19 vaccination service

Community pharmacy COVID-19 vaccination service

Community pharmacies across Northern Ireland are providing primary COVID-19 vaccinations to everyone aged 18 and over. This is for both first and/or second COVID-19 vaccination doses.

The JCVI recommended age for different vaccines may vary. Please check the vaccine information for each vaccine for more information.

To be vaccinated at a community pharmacy, you normally have to be registered with a GP in Northern Ireland.

However, if you are not registered with a GP in Northern Ireland, but have a residential address in NI then please speak to the pharmacist for advice about how you can proceed to be vaccinated.
