WALK-IN booster vaccination clinics will be held in Letterkenny this weekend for healthcare workers and people aged 60 to 69.
The jabs will be given at the Letterkenny Vaccination Centre tomorrow (Saturday) from 8am to 3.30pm for people who had a second dose on or before June 28.
On Sunday those who received their second dose on or before June 29 can get their booster between 8.15am to 5.20pm.
A spokesperson for the HSE said: “Booster doses are being administered to people aged 60 and older, those living in nursing homes or long-term health facilities and healthcare workers. NIAC has now advised that all those in Cohorts 4 and 7 (regardless) of age and persons over the age of 50 are to be offered a COVID Booster Vaccine in the coming weeks. The HSE are operationalising these recommendations and recognising the need to deliver the programme as quickly as possible there will be a number of settings, including vaccination centres and community pharmacies, for patients in these groups to receive the Covid Booster.
“In most cases, people should get their booster dose at least 5 months after finishing a course of COVID-19 vaccine. Anyone who has had COVID-19 since being vaccinated should get their booster at least 6 months after the positive test result.
“This weekend the Letterkenny Vaccination Centre will be holding walk-in booster vaccination clinics at the following times for healthcare workers and people aged 60 to 69 who have reached the correct interval since their second dose:
· Saturday 27 November, 8am to 3.30pm. For people who had second dose on or before 28 June.
· Sunday 28 November, 8.15am to 5.20pm. For people who had second dose on or before 29 June.
