SDLP Minister and Deputy Leader Nichola Mallon MLA has today received her booster of the vaccine to tackle Covid-19.
Speaking from Crusaders Football Club in North Belfast where the North Belfast MLA received her third dose, Ms Mallon praised the staff running the booster roll out.
Nichola Mallon MLA said:
“Today I received my booster jab of the vaccine to protect against Covid-19. The staff running this significant effort across the North are doing a tremendous job, so efficient, kind and caring. They deserve our utmost gratitude.
“I also want to thank Crusaders Football Club for giving over their facility for use as a convenient walk in vaccine clinic for the people of North Belfast. This has undoubtedly helped to boost the number of local people coming forward for their first, second and third vaccinations.
“As we prepare for celebrations over the Christmas period and seeing our loved ones, we must remember that Covid-19 continues to spread and we must do all we can to protect each other and particularly those elderly and vulnerable in our community.
“Getting the booster jab provides added protection and is a key tool in our fight against this cruel virus. I would encourage everyone to get their vaccinations and booster as soon as they can. It is a straight forward and quick process.”
