ANOTHER round of walk-in Pfizer Dose 1&2 vaccine clinics for adults, and children aged 12 and over, will be held at the Mid West Covid-19 Vaccination Centres this weekend.

The no-appointment walk-in clinics in Ennis (Friday and Saturday), Limerick Racecourse (Friday and Sunday), and Nenagh (Sunday) are for Dose 1 and Dose 2 vaccinations only. They are not for anyone seeking a third dose of the vaccine, which is delivered under separate programmes.

The clinics have been scheduled in the Mid West this weekend as follows:

Anyone attending walk-in clinics for second doses should bring their vaccine record card with them. A minimum of 21 days must have passed after Pfizer Dose 1 before Dose 2 is administered. This should be observed also for people who have received AstraZeneca Dose 1 and who are presenting for Pfizer Dose 2.

Everyone attending for vaccination, whether for Dose 1 or Dose 2, should bring identification, in the form of a birth certificate, or a photo ID (ie, driving licence, Public Services Card, travel pass, passport, Garda-issued National Age Card, or school or college ID). For queries,  contact the local HSE-approved helpline number on 087-9681240 (9am-6pm, seven days a week).
