HSE Look To Extend Use Of Walk In Vaccination Centres After Proving Successful

The HSE is looking at extending the walk in vaccination centres after they proved a success over the weekend.

Over 30,000 people received a Covid 19 vaccine at the facilities including the Shoreline Leisure Centre in Greystones, which the Health Service says outstripped their expectations.

CEO Paul Reid says it shows young people showed up, when needed.

The HSE’s National Lead for the Vaccination Programme, Damien McCallion, says they’re considering extending them.
