Walk-in clinics for COVID-19 ‘Spring Booster’ set to continue over coming days Clinics see surge in attendances this week

The HSE advises that community vaccination centres (CVCs) around the country will continue to offer walk-in clinics to people eligible for the current COVID-19 Spring Booster over the coming days. 

Across the South East, vaccination centres, GPs and pharmacies have reported an increase in demand for Spring Boosters this week. The HSE is again reminding everyone aged 70 or older and those aged 5 years or older with a weak immune system and who have not yet received their COIVD-19 Spring Booster vaccine to avail of it as soon as possible.

The COVID-19 Spring Booster programme will shortly end in mid-June and we are urging all those who are eligible to take up the opportunity to get vaccinated as early as possible to protect yourself against COVID-19. You can do this by going along to one of our walk-in vaccination clinics or getting a Spring Booster vaccine at participating pharmacies or GPs.

Kate Cassidy, who is co-ordinating the HSE’s COVID-19 Vaccination Programme across counties Carlow, Kilkenny, South Tipperary, Waterford and Wexford says:

“We are reminding those who have weak immune systems or those who are immunocompromised that it’s not too late to avail of their Spring Booster vaccine. Walk-in clinics continue to be available with no appointment required in Carlow, Clonmel, Ennisorthy, Kilkenny and Waterford, making it easy for people to receive their Spring Booster vaccine.

“People’s immunity weakens over time, especially in older people. This latest booster will keep you protected from serious illness and boost your immunity against infection from COVID-19. Vaccines are proven to your best protection against serious illness from COVID-19. If you haven’t had your COVID-19 Spring booster yet, you’re at risk.”

If you are eligible, you can also get a COVID-19 Spring booster from a participating GP or pharmacy or go to a Community Vaccination Centre (CVCs).

Anyone aged 5 or older with a weak immune system (immunocompromised) is being offered a COVID-19 Spring booster with those under 12 being vaccinated at our vaccination centres by appointment ONLY. Residents of long-term care facilities for older adults are also currently being vaccinated by HSE mobile vaccination teams.
