The Saolta University Health Care Group is currently recruiting staff to support the roll-out of the Covid-19 Vaccination Programme.
The group is looking for clinical staff who are eligible to administer vaccines for an initial three-month contract, which may be extended. The group is also recruiting health care assistants and administrative staff to support the vaccination centres.
Vaccinations centres will be located in Galway, Sligo, Letterkenny, Castlebar, Carrick-on-Shannon and Roscommon. The vaccination programme will run seven days a week over a 12 hour day.
Paul Hooton, Chief Director of Nursing and Midwifery at the Saolta University Health Care Group told Midwest News that the Covid-19 vaccination programme is going to be one of the biggest immunisation programmes ever undertaken in this country. “Since the end of December across the Saolta Group we have administered more than 15,000 first doses and 10,000 second doses of the Covid-19 vaccine to frontline healthcare workers. We will shortly be moving towards supporting the public vaccinations centres which will enable the wider vaccination of the general public over the coming weeks and months in a safe and efficient way.
