Walk-in vaccination clinics are open to anyone over 12 this weekend – here's where they are

It’s the first weekend the centres have been opened up to children aged 12-15.

WALK-IN COVID vaccination clinics are in operation again over the course of this weekend.

The centres are open to anyone who needs either their first or second dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.

The centres have also been opened up to children aged 12-15 for the first time this weekend.

Children in this age bracket will be able to receive a Covid jab at one of the clinics dotted around the country if they attend the facility with a parent or guardian.

Anyone aged 16 and older can attend one of the clinics alone.

The no-appointment needed facilities have proven very popular, with thousands of people receiving inoculations at the centres since they were set up less than a month ago.  

Both the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines are available from the clinics.

People attending for a second Pfizer jab must have received their first Pfizer vaccine at least 21 days beforehand.

Those attending for a second Moderna shot must have received their first Moderna vaccine at least 28 days previously.

A person is fully vaccinated around seven days after the second dose of Pfizer and around 14 days after their second dose of Moderna.

People attending clinics will need:

  • Personal Public Service (PPS) number – if you have one
  • Eircode
  • Mobile phone number
  • Email address
  • Photo ID that has your date of birth – this can be a passport, driving licence, Garda age card, school ID

Anyone who has already registered will only need photo ID that shows their date of birth.
