Are you vaccinated yet?
Four of Cork’s vaccination centres will open their doors to walk-ins once again this weekend. No appointment is necessary to avail of the walk-in clinics, which will provide vaccines to anybody aged 12 or over, though children between the ages of 12 and 15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Most clinics nationally are providing first and second doses of Pfizer, and the HSE has noted that you must wait at least 21 days between receiving your first and second dose.
The HSE has further specified that if you received a first dose of AstraZeneca, it is possible to opt for Pfizer as your second dose.
