Changes to vaccine centre walk-in times

The HSE has announced changes to times that people can walk-in to the Covid-19 vaccine centre in Cavan.

It says people aged 12 and over will only be able to receive a vaccine without an appointment on Thursday and Sunday of this week.

The centre, which is located at the Hotel Kilmore, will be open from 8.30am to 12.30pm on both days.

Meanwhile, the Monaghan Covid vaccination centre is open for walk-in appointments from 9am to 5pm Monday-Sunday.

Monaghan’s centre is located at the Glencarn Hotel in Castleblayney.

People hoping to receive their first vaccine dose in any centre are asked to bring their PPS number, Eircode, mobile number, email address and photo ID with a date of birth on it.

A parent or guardian will need to give consent if their child is under the age of 16.

Figures released by the HSE yesterday showed Cavan's vaccine uptake rate is just under 90%.
