Vaccines will be administered between 10 am and 4 pm to those who have booked on the HSE website

Jean Kelly is encouraging people to get fully vaccinated to avoid the worst effects of the virus.

"The numbers of people with long Covid are absolutely phenomenal, there are quite large numbers of people left with long Covid after having Covid, so you don't want that either,  you don't want Covid , you don't want to get very sick.  So I am encouraging everyone to come and get their next booster."
