Two COVID-19 pop-up vaccination clinics will be held in Stranorlar this weekend on Friday the 10th and Saturday 11th June.
The clinics will be held in the St. Mary’s Parish Centre on Main Street Stranorlar from 11am to 5.45pm for those aged 12 years and over for Dose 1, Dose 2 and booster vaccines.
Children aged 12-15 must be accompanied by parent/guardian and walk ins are welcome.
Those 65 years and over who are eligible for a 2nd booster may also attend on the day.
Operational Site Manager Letterkenny CVC Donna Carroll said: “Without a booster dose, people are at greater risk from severe illness from COVID-19. We encourage everyone aged 12 or over to attend for their booster once they are eligible.”
Walk-in’s are welcome or people can continue to book appointments at vaccination centres on HSE.ie at this link: https://www2.hse.ie/screening-and-vaccinations/covid-19-vaccine/get-the-vaccine/covid-19-vaccine-booster-dose/
It is important that you do not go to a vaccination centre if you have COVID-19; if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or if you have been told to self isolate.
It is also important to check your eligibility online on HSE.ie before you book your appointment.
