It’s vital that north west residents avail of vaccinations

The Director of public health for the HSE North-West has urged the public to avail of the new walk in vaccination centres which will be operating across Sligo Leitrim and Donegal.

Ireland’s first walk-in vaccination centres will open this bank holiday weekend.


People without an appointment will be able to get a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at the various sites.


The walk-in clinics are open to everyone over aged 16 – meaning those aged 12-15 will not be able to avail of them for now.


Locally centres at Letterkenny IT and Cardonagh will be open to those in Donegal, the Primary Care Unite in Carrick-on-Shannon in Co Leitrim and in Sligo at the Knocknarea at Sligo Institute of Technology.


Dr Anthony Breslin is urging as many people as possible to avail of the vaccination:
