North West Pharmacies continue to rollout Covid vaccines

The HSE says the Covid-19 vaccine is now available from pharmacies in Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim and Cavan for people aged 12 and over.


Edel Quinn, acting chief officer, Community Healthcare Organisation Area 1, says support from pharmacies is instrumental in ensuring access to vaccines for people in the community who may not be in a position to get to one of our HSE vaccination cent.


Darragh O’Loughlin, Secretary General of the Irish Pharmacy Union (IPU), says some people may feel more comfortable getting the vaccine in a local pharmacy, often from someone they know.


Over 740 community pharmacies are administering the COVID-19 vaccination around the country.


Details of participating pharmacies are available on the HSE website by typing in the relevant county in the search area.
