The Mayo Vaccination Centre at Breaffy House Resort, Castlebar will be holding walk-in booster vaccination clinics at specific times over the coming days for healthcare workers and people aged 60 to 69 who have reached an interval of at least 152 days since their second dose vaccine.
People in these two groups that received the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine can also get their booster at a walk-in clinic if they have an interval of at least 3 months since their vaccination.
However, anyone who has had COVID-19 since their vaccination should wait to get their booster dose at least 6 months after the positive test result.
Walk-in Clinics for Booster Vaccine for Healthcare Workers
- Saturday 27 November, 1.30pm to 5.20pm. For people who had second dose on or before 28 June.
- Sunday 28 November, 9.30am to 12.30pm AND 1.30pm to 5.20pm. For people who had second dose on or before 29 June.
Walk-in Clinics for Booster Vaccine for those aged 60 to 69
- Monday 29 November, 9.30am to 12.30pm. For people who had second dose on or before 30 June.
Frank Harburn, Saolta General Manager for the rollout of the vaccination programme in the West and North West says – “You do not need to register for a booster vaccine as the system has a record of when you completed your vaccination course and will automatically send you an appointment text message once you have reached the appropriate interval.
We ask people to come to their appointment if possible and if you need to reschedule, reply to your appointment text. This will allow us to offer the time slot to someone else and help us move through our lists as quickly as we can so we can move on to the next group due for booster doses.
We are also working hard to plan future booster vaccination clinics for people with some underlying conditions and those aged in their 50s and I look forward to sharing details of these clinics in the coming weeks. Again we will be inviting people in these groups to appointments based on their vaccination dates on the system so there is no need to register.
Those attending the clinic are advised to bring their PPS number and a photo ID. If your ID doesn't include your date of birth, bring proof of your DOB (e.g. your birth cert). Healthcare workers are asked to bring evidence of their place of work.
