Walk in COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics 11 - 17 October

Walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics continue this week at centres across the West and North West. Anyone aged 12 upwards who needs a vaccine is invited to come to a walk-in clinic for either a first or second dose. 

Pregnant women
The guidance on vaccination for pregnant women has changed and now women at any stage of pregnancy are now encouraged to take up the COVID-19 vaccine following a discussion with their midwife, GP or obstetrician. If advised by their healthcare team, women can register online for a vaccination appointment or go to a walk-in vaccination clinic at any stage of pregnancy.

Mixed vaccines doses
People who received a first dose of AstraZeneca can receive an mRNA (Pfizer/Moderna) vaccine as their second dose. NIAC recommends that receiving two doses of the same vaccine are preferred for all age groups, where possible. You can read more about this here..

For first dose vaccines, bring with you:

  • PPS number. If you do not have a PPS number, you can still get vaccinated. You will need to bring proof of address.*
  • Eircode
  • mobile phone number
  • email address
  • photo ID that has your date of birth – this can be a passport, driving licence, Garda age card, school ID.

*Your proof of address can be a:

  • household bill in your name
  • bank or financial institution statement
  • letter from a public service department or agency
  • rental agreement
  • letter from the owner of the property to confirm you live there - this can be your parent
  • bill or letter from a hotel or Airbnb

Aged 12 to 15? Parental consent is required

  • A parent or legal guardian will need to give consent for their child to get their COVID-19 vaccine and will need go to with the child to the walk-in clinic in person to give consent if they have not given consent online in advance.
  • The child getting the vaccine will also be asked if they are happy to get the vaccine at their appointment.
  • Children aged 12 to 15 attending alone will not be vaccinated. If the parent or legal guardian has given consent online in advance, it is possible for them to ask another adult to bring their child to the appointment. If consent has not been given, the child's parent or legal guardian has to be there.
  • If possible, children aged 12 to 15 should bring a form of identification with their date of birth on it (for example, passport or birth certificate). If 12 to 15 year olds do not have any identification, the adult who brings them to their appointment can confirm their identity and their age.

Aged 16 or 17 and have no photo ID?

Bring your birth cert if you are aged 16 or 17 and have no photo ID. If you also have proof of your Personal Public Service (PPS) number, such as a child benefit letter containing your PPS number, this will be helpful for staff at the vaccination centre. But you do not need it to get vaccinated.

Getting your second dose?

  • You can go to any dose 2 walk-in clinic as long as your vaccination is due and you have proof of your first dose. For example, your vaccination record card. You can only get vaccinated with the same vaccine you had for your first dose.
  • It does not matter where you had your first dose - even if you were vaccinated at a GP, pharmacy or in another country.
  • You will not be vaccinated at a dose 2 clinic if you do not have proof of your first dose. If you lost your vaccination record card, go back to the GP or pharmacy where you got your first dose to get proof of vaccination.
  • Bring photo ID with you. If your photo ID does not have your date of birth on it, you should also bring a copy of your birth cert or some other documentation that has your date of birth.
