COVID-19 vaccine rollout
Vaccination against COVID-19 provides another layer of protection on top of our procedures, policies and protocols to keep you safe.
If you are a first or co responder, you are eligible to receive the vaccine now as part of Group 2 in the Government’s vaccine programme roll out.
The location of vaccination hubs that first and co responders can access can be found here along with links to book where appointments are available.
