A queue stretched out of the door of one of Belfast’s best-known music venues on Saturday, but the star attraction at the Limelight was a pop-up vaccine clinic, not a performer. The clinic was part of Northern Ireland’s push to increase the numbers of young people getting their jab, from 72% of 18- to 29-year-olds to a figure closer to the 90% uptake for the total adult population. Those getting their vaccine at the Limelight were being given a free ticket to a gig at Ormeau Park next week, but organisers said people were motivated to get the jab and the tickets were just an extra incentive.
