The Mayo Vaccination Centre at Breaffy House Resort in Castlebar is set to close this Sunday, the 19th of June, as part of a national plan being rolled out by the HSE.
The HSE have taken the decision to reduce the number of vaccine centres across the country to 15, due to a large reduction in the numbers of people presenting at the centres.
Of these 15 centres, 1 will be located in Community Healthcare West in Ballybrit Racecourse in Galway. A number of GP practices and Pharmacies in the west will continue to provide the service.
HSE says that its mobile vaccination teams will operate within all areas throughout the summer and will continue to deliver vaccination doses to those who are homebound and residents of Long Term Residential Centres. The HSE will also put in place a number of pop-up vaccination teams that will be available to support particular locations if access to vaccination becomes a challenge.
Staff from the vaccination centres that are set to close will be redeployed to mobile vaccination teams across the region.
