COVID-19 Vaccines

 

We are currently working through COVID 19 Vaccines for our patients aged 70yrs+ in the surgery.

 

Deliveries are on a fortnightly basis.

 

We are running vaccine clinics as per Public health/HSE advice. These clinics will be rolled out on a decreasing age basis as follows

Clinic 1: Ages 85+

Clinic 2: Ages 80-85

Clinic 3: Ages 75-80

Clinic 4: Ages 70-75

Our reception team will make contact with each patient in these age cohorts to invite them to partake in this vaccine closer to the time of their age appropriate clinic.

Please read the following information about the vaccine prior to attending for your vaccine

It is important to seek medical attention as normal if you have any symptoms you are concerned about, whether covid or non-covid related. Please contact us by phone if you have concerns.
