Walk-In Clinics at Vaccination Centres this weekend
OCTOBER 6th, 2021 | Another round of walk-in Pfizer Dose 1&2 vaccine clinics for adults, and children aged 12 and over, will be held at the Mid-West COVID-19 Vaccination Centres this weekend (October 8th-10th) in Limerick (Friday), Ennis (Saturday) and Nenagh (Sunday).
The clinics—part of the ongoing national effort to maximise public immunity to COVID-19, and to maximise access for those who received AstraZeneca Dose 1 and can, per national guidance, receive the Pfizer vaccine for their second dose—are scheduled as follows:
|Date||Vaccination Centre||Vaccine Clinic||Clinic Time|
|Friday October 8th||Limerick Racecourse||Pfizer Dose 1 & 2||4.30pm-7pm|
|Saturday October 9th||Ennis, West County Hotel||Pfizer Dose 1 & 2||4.30pm-7pm|
|Sunday October 10th||Nenagh, Abbey Court Hotel||Pfizer Dose 1 & 2||130pm-6pm|
Those attending for second doses should bring their vaccine record card with them. Please note that a minimum of 21 days must have passed after Pfizer Dose 1 before Dose 2 is administered. This should be observed also for people who have received AstraZeneca Dose 1 and who are presenting for Pfizer Dose 2.
No appointment is necessary for these clinics, and there is no requirement to register on the national vaccine registration portal. However, please note that children under 16 years must be accompanied to centres by a parent or guardian.
For identification, anyone attending should bring their birth certificate, or a photo ID (i.e., driving licence, Public Services Card, travel pass, passport, Garda-issued National Age Card, or school or college ID). For queries, contact the local HSE-approved helpline number on 087-9681240 (9am-6pm, seven days a week). All clinic dates and times and related information will be published on www.hse.ie. Outside of these walk-in clinics, parents or guardians of children aged 12 to 15 may continue to register children on the HSE website via this link: https://vaccine.hse.ie/#register
UL Hospitals Group COVID-19 vaccination teams continue working to ensure that everyone in the Mid-West will receive a vaccine, in line with national guidance on COVID-19 vaccination. Anyone with queries about COVID-19 vaccination may contact the national helpline on 1850-241850.
In the week to close of business on Sunday October 3rd, a total of 2,050 doses of vaccine were delivered in the Mid-West COVID-19 Vaccination Centres at Limerick Racecourse, the West County Hotel, Ennis, and the Abbey Court Hotel, Nenagh. This brings to 363,168 the total vaccines administered under the UL Hospitals Group vaccination programme since it began on January 4th, and includes healthcare workers, residents and staff of nursing homes, and patients in the various cohorts and age groups. These totals do not account for the vaccination work that has been undertaken to date by our colleagues in HSE Mid-West Community Healthcare, the National Ambulance Service, General Practitioners and pharmacists.
