OVER 5,000 people have been vaccinated across Ireland at a series of walk-in centres this weekend.
One of the centres is located at Letterkenny Institute of Technology.
The LYIT walk-in centre is operating until 4.30pm today.
HSE Chief Executive Paul Reid confirmed a further 5,000 first doses had been administered at the walk-in clinics as of this morning.
“Now over 89pc of adults are partially vaccinated and over 77pc fully. We’re getting there,” Reid said on Twitter.
More than 30,000 people availed of the walk-in centres last weekend.
The HSE have said that over 60pc of 16 and 17-year-olds have registered for a Covid-19 vaccine so far with 40pc already receiving their first dose.
There is no need to register online before visiting one of these clinics but people are required to supply a mobile phone number, eircode, email address and photo ID, which contains their date of birth.
Where possible, a Personal Public Service number should be made available, but if people do not have a PPS number, they can still get vaccinated once proof of address is provided.
If people have already registered online and are waiting on an appointment for their first dose, they can choose to go to a walk-in clinic instead.Tags:
