Covid pop-up vaccination clinic to take place in Roscommon

The HSE is inviting older people and at-risk groups to attend a HSE COVID-19 vaccination clinic in Roscommon on Sunday next, October 23.

The clinic takes place at the Outpatients Department, Roscommon University Hospital, Roscommon from 10am to 1pm and all those attending are asked to please bring along photo ID on the day.

Since early October, three adapted bivalent mRNA COVID-19 vaccines have been recommended for use for booster vaccination by the National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC), following approval by the European Medicines Agency.

COVID-19 primary and booster vaccines for people aged 12 or over are also available in the 15 vaccination centres across the country.

The HSE is also reminding anyone who has not received their primary vaccine or their booster doses, or who has had COVID-19 and has had to wait 4 months for their booster, to book an appointment as soon as possible.

Appointments can be booked online at HSE vaccination clinics, which is an easy and convenient way to get the booster dose as appointments can be booked at a specific time and date to suit each individual.

For children aged 5 to 11 who have not had their primary COVID-19 vaccination, and for those with a weak immune system and those who are due a booster dose, appointments are available at HSE vaccination centres by making an appointment on
