The Northern Ireland model for vaccine deployment has been designed to be pragmatic, agile and flexible.



As has been repeatedly emphasised, the rate of progress will be dependent on the availability of vaccines, supplied as part of UK-wide arrangements.

The deployment plans involve a mixture of delivery models which include large fixed regional vaccination sites run by HSC Trusts.

It also includes mobile Trust teams to visit care homes and a Primary Care based model.

The vaccines are received via Public Health England before being stored in a distribution hub.

From there, the vaccine is delivered, as required, to Trust pharmacy sites or a GP practice.



It is also intended that community pharmacy will be involved as the programme continues to be rolled out.

This is subject to the availability of sufficient supplies of a suitable vaccine.

The implementation of the vaccination programme will continue to closely follow the prioritisation list recommended by JCVI.
