A mobile vaccination trolley is to be set up in Larne on Thursday evening to reach football fans attending a European Conference League game.

The Northern Trust mobile vaccination team will be based near the Inver Park home of Larne Football Club.

The mobile clinic is located at St. Cedmas Parish Hall on Church Road and is open from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

NIFL Premiership Team Larne welcomes the Welsh Team Bala Town to their home in Co Antrim. Larne takes a 1-0 lead, it is the first time in the club’s history that they host a European Cup match.

The Ministry of Health’s move to operate mobile vaccine clinics can be traced back to the increase in cases of the more transmissible delta variant of the coronavirus.

Anyone wishing to be vaccinated must be over 18 years of age and not yet have been vaccinated.

The teams will administer the Covid-19 Pfizer vaccine.

They added that there is no need to book in advance but people should bring ID with them.

This can be: passport, driver’s license, bus pass, care card or a document that confirms a name and address, such as B. an electricity / gas / telephone bill.

Patients must also return to the area in six weeks to receive their second dose.

Health Minister Robin Swann has urged friends and parents of young people to encourage vaccination.

“I’m not asking for pests or nagging. Please ensure that your friends and children 18 and over are making an informed decision about vaccination and are aware of everything that is at stake. Sit down with them and have the interview, ”said Robin Swann.

“When young people get the sting, they protect themselves, their parents, their grandparents, and everyone close to them.

“Every vaccination brings us one step closer to normal. A double push opens doors for people. We see that when traveling and the requirements for vaccination certificates for trips abroad.

“My message to young people is: do not be left behind – do not leave yourselves without the protection and opportunities that a double blow brings with it.”
