A PRACTICE manager hopes that the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccine will help make a massive difference in the local community.

Four practices from the Causeway Federation of GPs - Fannin, Hutchinson & Boyd, Ballymoney Family Practice, Coleraine Health Centre and The Country Medical Centre came together last Wednesday (January 19) to roll out the COVID-19 vaccine to patients of the four practices.

As we revealed in last week’s paper, the vaccinations would be carried out at the Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre in Ballymoney.
