A new COVID-19 vaccination satellite centre in Belmullet opens today to serve communities in North Mayo.
The centre is located in Belmullet Civic Offices on Church Road.
There will be two walk-in vaccination clinics taking place at the new vaccination centre this week:
This afternoon 1pm to 7pm for Pfizer dose 1 for age 12 or older and Pfizer dose 2 for anyone who received their first dose before 11 August.
Then again this Friday from 1pm to 7pm for Pfizer dose 1 for age 12 or older and Pfizer dose 2 for anyone who received their first dose before 14 August.
The centre will then operate on a walk-in basis on one or more days per week, depending on demand.
Frank Harburn is the HSE General Manager for the vaccination programme across the west and north-west regions and he’s been speaking to Midwest News Editor Teresa O’Malley about the new satellite walk-in vaccination in Belmullet getting underway this afternoon.
