Operational Site Manager Letterkenny CVC Donna Carroll said “We are urging those who are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine or a booster and who have not yet received it to get their vaccine. This is particularly important as we enter the Autumn/Winter Season. Our pop-up vaccination clinics will enable people to get their vaccinations without having to travel to our COVID-19 Vaccination Centre in Letterkenny and we would urge people to avail of the opportunity to get either their primary or booster vaccinations.”
