Pop-up vaccine clinic for Ballyconnell

The latest pop-up Covid vaccine clinic is to be held in Ballyconnell this week.

The HSE says the clinic will be held on Friday (May 20) at TMTS Training, Ballyconnell Business Park.

The clinic will run from 11.30am to 4pm and will offer first and second doses and booster vaccinations to everyone aged 12 years and over. No appointment is needed.

It follows a number of other clinics held in Bailieborough, Ballyjamesduff and Shercock over the past month.

Cavan CVC operational site manager, Eddie Ward, said: "We have had a large number of people present for their booster vaccinations at our pop-up clinics in Bailieborough, Ballyjamesduff and Shercock. This was a testament to the amount of time and effort expended by our partners in County Cavan Local Development, who made people aware by various means that the clinic was taking place. As well as dose 1, we will also be holding pop-up vaccination clinics at each of the pop-up venues we administered dose 1 at, so people can return for their dose 2 as well as booster vaccines. We would encourage all those who are eligible to avail of the booster vaccine as soon as they are eligible.”
