Mayo people can avail of their Covid-19 vaccination without an appointment next weekend.

People aged 16 and over will be able to get a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at Breaffy Vaccination Centre on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday next between the hours of 12 noon and 6pm.

In Roscommon, the walk-in facility is available at the Abbey Hotel in Roscommon town on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

In Galway the centre is at the Racecourse at Ballybrit and will be available on Bank Holiday Monday from 10am to 4pm.

There is also a satellite service in Clifden at the Community School on Saturday from 10am to 2.30pm.

In Sligo, vaccinations will be available at the Knocknarea Arena at Sligo IT on Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10am to 2pm.

In Leitrim, appointment-free vaccinations will be available in the Primary Care Centre, Carrick-on-Shannon on Monday from 10am to 2pm.

Deputy Alan Dillon said many people will have registered for a vaccine appointment already, but if they have not received the vaccine, they can still attend the new walk-in clinics. “Registration can be done at the centres themselves, although the HSE say registering online in advance may speed up the process. Anyone who has already registered online is asked to bring a photo ID to the centre. Those who haven’t registered will need their PPS number, Eircode, phone number and email address.”

Anyone who gets their first dose at one of the centres above will get an appointment for their second via test message. This will be at a centre close to their home address. People are also asked to attend the centres alone and not to bring children along.
