Walk in vaccination clinics in Ennis, Limerick and Nenagh

Another series of scheduled walk-in vaccination clinics for adults, and children aged 12 and over, has been organised across the Mid-West COVID-19 Vaccination Centres in Limerick, Ennis and Nenagh this weekend.

These local clinics form part of the nationwide effort to maximise uptake for Pfizer Dose 1&2 and Modern Dose 2 vaccinations, and to provide easy access for those people who have received AstraZeneca Dose 1 and who now, as per national guidance, can receive the Pfizer vaccine as their second dose.

In Ennis people can get Pfizer Dose 1 or 2 from 4-7pm on Friday at the West County Hotel, or on Sunday between 9am and 6pm.

At Limerick Racecourse people can get Pfizer Dose 1 or 2 or Moderna Dose 2 from 2-7pm on Friday. Also at Limerick Racecourse Pfizer Dose 1 and 2 will be available on Sunday, between 9am and 6pm.

On Satuday people can get either of the Pfizer Doses at the Abbey Court Hotel, between 9am and 6pm.

Anyone attending for second doses of Pfizer or Moderna should bring their vaccine record card with them, and note the following: for the Pfizer vaccine, a minimum of 21 days must have passed after Dose 1 before Dose 2 is administered:This should be observed also for people who have received AstraZeneca Dose 1 and who are receiving Pfizer for their second dose. The second dose of Moderna must be administered at least 28 days after Moderna Dose 1.

Those who wish to attend the clinics do not require an appointment, and do not need to register in advance on the national vaccine registration portal. Please note that children under 16 years must be accompanied to the centre by a parent or guardian.
