Details of participating pharmacies and how to book are online here.

Walk-in jabs are available for second doses as well as first doses, providing the required interval has passed since your first jab.

The required interval between first and second doses is six weeks for Pfizer and eight weeks for Astra Zeneca.

Issuing a call out to anyone who is unvaccinated, Health Minister Robin Swann said: “Our vaccination centres have done a fantastic job in rolling-out the vaccination programme and will continue to administer second doses throughout August. However people will not be able to get a first dose jab at a vaccination centre after Saturday July 31.

“If you haven’t already received your vaccine, then I would urge you to come forward ahead of Saturday. Getting your jab will never be easier or more accessible than it is right now. You do not need an appointment. You can simply turn up and receive the vaccine. This applies to all adults and anyone who will turn 18 before October 31.”
