First and second doses.
Amid worsening case numbers and increased numbers of patients in the ICU with Covid, Cork will be offering walk-in vaccinations at two locations between now and Monday.
Over 90% of Ireland’s population is fully vaccinated, which has tempered the worst effects of the Delta variant. However, we can do more to protect everyone in our society.
This weekend, two Cork sites will offer vaccinations to those without appointments. Those who turn up will be offered the Pfizer vaccine. It’s possible to get either your first or second dose, but you must wait at least 21 days between doses. Those who have received an initial dose of AstraZeneca can also rock up to receive Pfizer as their second dose.
The service is available to everybody over the age of 12, though children between the ages of 12 and 15 must be accompanied by a parent of legal guardian.
This details of the walk-in sites are:
Bantry Primary Care Clinic
- Monday 25 October, 1pm to 4pm
City Hall Cork
- Saturday 23 October 1:00pm to 4.00pm
2,029 new cases of the virus were confirmed yesterday, with 448 people hospitalised, 88 of which are in intensive care.
