Currently we are not providing Covid 19 vaccines at the surgery and no longer have a supply of any of the Covid 19 vaccines. We recommend signing up to the HSE portal or applying to the local pharmacies who are supplying the vaccine currently. 

If you are still awaiting your vaccine you should look at options being provided by the HSE.

A list of pharmacies administering vaccines can be found HERE

Q. What about patients under 70 with no increased risk?

– While the over 70s age group has been prioritized with the first rollout of vaccines, the HSE have organised a national electronic/online portal to recruit anyone under 70. This is still being changed but can be seen on HSE website. People under 70  will be vaccinated in several mass vaccination clinics which have already started vaccinating .
