St. Patrick’s Day vaccinations at Waterford Primary Care Centre

HSE Media Release: 17 March 2021

GPs and the team members of the Keogh Practice, which is located in the building, were onsite since 7 am this morning busily preparing doses for hundreds of patients aged 75 and over.

Administration of the first Covid Vaccine to be delivered on St. Patrick’s Day began at 9 am.

Speaking amid much activity at the South East Community Healthcare Primary Care Centre in John’s Hill, Waterford, Dr Deirdre Plant of the Keogh Practice said:

“There’s a lively, positive atmosphere – with green hats and shamrock badges aplenty! It is heartening to see so many smiles among the safely managed coming and going of patients and family members.”

Mary Power from Tramore was one of those who was delighted to participate in a St. Patrick’s Day occasion with a difference:

“Normally, I would have been looking forward to the parade in Tramore and lunch with the family. I wish all of this disruption to life was over. To that end, I would encourage everyone to avail of the vaccine when their turn comes around. It only took a few seconds for me, I feel great after it and the whole thing was processed most efficiently by my GP and her colleagues.”
