Final COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Clifden this week

The final COVID-19 vaccination clinics will take place in Clifden Community School this week and anyone who requires a first or second dose vaccine after that will receive vaccine appointments for the Ballybrit vaccination centre in Galway.

Frank Harburn, General Manager for the rollout of the vaccination programme in the West and North West said, “We are very grateful to the management and staff of West Connemara Leisure Centre Committee for facilitating us to hold vaccination clinics in their building over the last couple of months. It was an ideal space for us to use as there was sufficient room for vaccination booths, an observation area and a registration area while also being wheelchair accessible with ample parking.

“I would also like to thank our colleagues in Community Healthcare West, Galway County Council and Fire Service, members of the Defence Forces, An Garda Síochána and the National Ambulance Service for their support.

“Since our first clinic on 06 July we have administered around 820 first and second dose vaccines in Clifden, including 130 first dose vaccines during the walk-in clinic over the August bank holiday weekend and 50 during the walk-in clinic last Saturday.

“Anyone who has received their first dose in the Clifden vaccination centre and will be due their second dose after next week will automatically receive a text message advising them to go to the Ballybrit vaccination centre to get their second vaccine. I would urge everyone to read their vaccine appointment text messages carefully to make sure that they know where their vaccine appointment takes place.”
