Covid 19 vaccination centre

The Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Diana Armstrong, recently visited the Covid-19 Vaccination Centre at Fermanagh Lakeland Forum to see the work currently being undertaken for the roll out of the Vaccination Programme. 

Speaking after her visit, Councillor Armstrong spoke of the tremendous work being undertaken at the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum by the Vaccination team. 

“I am delighted to have had the opportunity to visit the Vaccination Centre here at Fermanagh Lakeland Forum, to witness at first hand, the excellent work of the vaccination team as they work to progress the roll-out of the Executive’s vaccination programme. 

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has worked closely with the Western Health and Social Care Trust in establishing Vaccination Centres at Fermanagh Lakeland Forum and Omagh Leisure Complex and I am incredibly impressed by the seamless manner in which the vaccination programme is being delivered here this afternoon. It is a tribute to the professionalism and dedication of the staff. 

The Vaccination programme is very important as it provides a pathway to a brighter and better future for us and an eventual route out of restrictions and a return to a more normal way of life. 

However, we are not there yet and I would encourage you to continue to follow the hands, face and space message and to adhere to the restrictions to ensure that we curb the spread of Covid-19 and protect the NHS and all the staff in the healthcare sector who have given so much, physically, mentally and emotionally, to ensure that we continue to receive a high level of care in the face of such extreme challenges. 

I would like to place on record, my gratitude to all healthcare workers and their families for their dedication and commitment and I would appeal to all our residents to do everything in their power to ease the pressure on them.  

We are stronger together and by following the guidance we can stay safe.”
