Walk-in Vaccination Clinics in Galway this weekend

Open to everyone aged 16 and over

Anyone aged 16 and older who hasn’t yet received their first dose vaccine, can go to one of the walk-in vaccination clinics in Galway this weekend and get their vaccine.

Frank Harburn, Saolta General Manager for the rollout of the vaccination programme in the West and North West said, “Last weekend we ran a number of walk-in vaccination clinics throughout the West and North West to make it as easy as possible for people to get vaccinated. We were very happy with the turnout, so we are running more walk-in clinics this weekend.”

The times and locations are as follows:

Ballybrit Vaccination Centre

Saturday, August 7: 10am to 4pm

Clifden Vaccination Centre

Saturday, August 7: 10am to 2pm

Anyone over the age of 16 who hasn’t yet received a first dose vaccine can attend one of the clinics on Saturday. If you visiting the area, you can still get a first dose on Saturday in the Galway vaccination centres and your second dose will be arranged at a vaccination centre near your home address.

The HSE says people don’t need to register online in advance, but registering may speed up your time spent in the vaccination centre.

All COVID-19 vaccines are free of charge. The Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is the vaccine being offered at the dose one walk-in vaccination centres.
