There are fears that operations at Longford's vaccination centre will be delayed due to suitability issues with the chosen site.
Longford Slashers GAA club was selected as the county centre along with 39 other centres nationwide, with the facility planned to begin vaccinations at the start of next week.
However, following concerns raised by the public, the HSE Estates team has been re-evaluating the site and the works needed to fix highlighted issues.
The accessibility of the site outside of the town and the steps down from the carpark to the building were some of the concerns raised on behalf of people with mobility issues attending the centre.
Longford County Council and the HSE Estates teams have confirmed they have selected a secondary location near the town as the county's alternative site.
Should the Longford Slashers site be abandoned, work will begin immediately on setting up the new centre.
The delay caused by the evaluation and the potential establishment of a new centre means Monday's target to begin operations will likely be missed.
Meanwhile, It's hoped the vaccine centre at the Abbey Hotel in Roscommon will open on Monday, with Leitrim's centre at the Carrick-on-shannon primary healthcare centre beginning operations this week.
A final decision on Longford's vaccine hub is due shortly.
