The HSE has announced that everyone aged 18 years and over who has not received their next dose of COVID-19 booster vaccine can go to the walk-in vaccination clinics running this Bank Holiday weekend.
The Vaccination Centre at St Brigid’s Complex, Ardee will be open for those aged 12 and older on Friday February 3 from 9am to 3pm and on Monday February 6 from
10am to 3pm. and for children aged 5 to 11 (dose 1 and dose 2 only) on Monday February 6 from ,12pm to 2pm.
There will also be a walk-in clinic at the Primary Care Unit, Barrack Street, Dundalk for those aged 12 and older on Sunday February 5 from 10am to 3pm and for children aged 5 to 11 (dose 1 and dose 2 only) from 12pm to 2pm.
No appointments are necessary for these clinics.
The HSE will also issue a reminder text messages to the 18-49 year olds due a booster. Almost 1.7 million are in this group and to date 95,000 or 6% have taken their second booster vaccine.
While some people in the 18-49 years age group may have already received their second booster if they are a healthcare worker or have had an underlying health condition, the HSE strongly urges people who have not yet received a COVID-19 booster vaccine to check their vaccine status and to do so as soon as possible. They can do this by contacting HSELive on 1800 700 700.
Booster COVID-19 vaccines are also available at participating GPs and pharmacies
