Jab & Go at the Balmoral Show

20th Sep 2021

Balmoral Show visitors will be able to avail of the ‘Jab & Go’ Covid-19 vaccination clinic at the Balmoral show.

Between Wednesday 22nd September and Saturday 25th the South Eastern Health and Social Trust is proud to provide the Covid vaccine at this landmark event which traditionally brings the country to the city.

This is a great opportunity to provide the farming and rural community easy access to the Covid-19 vaccine to protect themselves and those close to them.

The vaccination tent will be located at stand B30, near the show ring; so why not grab a jab on your way to the show!

The vaccination clinic will be open from 10.00am – 6.00pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and 10.00am – 5.00pm on Saturday and Sunday. Our staff will be there and ready to vaccinate everyone over 18 years of age with the Moderna vaccine, 16 and 17 year olds will receive the Pfizer vaccine. Second doses of the vaccine will be administered at participating pharmacies.

Tanya Daly, Clinical Lead, Covid-19 Vaccination Programme for the South Eastern HSC Trust said “We are delighted to be delivering COVID-19 Vaccinations at the Balmoral Show. The return of the Balmoral Show is an example of how we are slowly getting back to normal and this is a great opportunity for those who have not already availed of the vaccine to do so while they enjoy the delights of the show. COVID-19 is sadly still very much with us and impacting greatly on our healthcare system and we would encourage anyone who has not yet had the vaccine to pop over to the tent. Remember the vaccine not only protects you but also your friends, your family and our amazing NHS.”

Rhonda Geary, Operations Director, Royal Ulster Agricultural Society said “We are delighted to facilitate a pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Balmoral Show. We hope that visitors will avail of this opportunity and visit the clinic that is running across all four days of the Show.”

Those attending for vaccination must bring photographic ID or proof of address and if possible a Health & Care number.
