Clare vaccination centre temporarily relocates to West County Hotel

THE Clare COVID-19 Vaccination Centre is temporarily relocating from the grounds of Ennis Hospital to Treacy’s West County Hotel this Saturday and Sunday, to maximise capacity in line with demand for weekend walk-in COVID vaccine booster clinics for the 50-69 years age group.

Walk-in COVID-19 Booster Clinics for 50-69s will run at the hotel this Saturday from 8.30am-7pm, and on Sunday from 1pm-7pm. Anyone who has received a notification for a scheduled appointment at the former outpatients department of Ennis Hospital on Sunday morning should attend as scheduled.

The locations and times of clinics for the week beginning December 20 will be confirmed in the coming days.

This relocation comes amid significant demand for weekend COVID-19 vaccine booster clinics, as we approach the first anniversary of the start of the UL Hospitals Group COVID-19 vaccination programme in the Mid-West, which got under way on January 4, 2021.

There is no appointment required, but the walk-in booster clinics in the West County this weekend are strictly for the 50-69 years age group. Anyone attending should note that, in accordance with national guidance, three months (90 days) must have passed since you received your Dose 2 vaccine. Anyone who had the single-dose Janssen vaccine, must wait at least three months before receiving a Booster dose.

Anyone who has had a COVID-19 positive result in the last six months should not attend for a booster vaccine. Further information on the COVID-19 Vaccine Booster is available at this link.

This relocation to the West County will significantly enhance booth capacity in an effort to meet demand and maximise uptake for the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.
