People in the Shannonside Northern Sound region who haven't been able to avail of a vaccine yet are being urged to attend special walk-in clinics this weekend. The walk-in clinics are happening tomorrow Friday at the vaccination centre in Longford, on Monday at the centre in Carrick-on-Shannon, and on Saturday , Sunday and Monday at the centre in Roscommon. Opening hours for the various centres will differ slightly so people are being asked to check online before they go. Anyone who wants to avail of the walk-in clinics is asked to bring basic documents with them including PPS number, proof of address, Eircode, and a Photo ID such as a passport, driving licence, travel pass or student card.
Frank Harburn who's General Manager for the rollout of the vaccination programme in the West and North West says they're hoping for a good turnout at the clinics.
