Community Healthcare Cavan, Donegal, Leitrim, Monaghan, Sligo - The HSE is advising people to get their recommended winter vaccines for Flu and COVID-19

18th November 2022
HSE Media Release

The HSE is advising people to get their recommended winter vaccines for flu and COVID-19 to ensure they are protected in the months ahead. Your next COVID-19 vaccine will help protect you from serious illness this winter. If you've had COVID-19 recently, wait 4 months before booking your vaccine appointment.

Cavan and Monaghan COVID-19 Vaccination Centres and Pop up clinics are offering primary vaccinations and adapted bivalent booster doses to eligible cohorts. These new adapted bivalent vaccines offer increased protection against COVID-19 and the Omicron variant.

You can book your COVID-19 vaccine appointment online at www.hse.ie/book or you can walk-in to the centre. There are different times offered for different age cohorts, therefore please ensure you book/walk-in to the correct clinic for your age.

Flu and COVID-19 viruses are now circulating in our communities and as they are different viruses you will need two vaccines to be protected against both.

Getting the Flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself, your family, colleagues and our health services. To book your Flu vaccine and to check if you are one of the eligible groups please contact your GP or check with your local pharmacy. You can also check which pharmacy is delivering flu vaccines via the pharmacy finder.
