THE vaccination centres in Kerry Sports Academy, Tralee and Killarney Sports & Leisure centre have planned a ‘walk-in’ first-dose Covid-19 vaccinations for anyone aged 18 and over.

Anyone aged 18 and over who has not already received a vaccine can attend at Killarney Sports & Leisure centre on Saturday, July 31 or Kerry Sports Academy, Tralee on Tuesday, August 3 from 11am to 3pm both days.

The clinics on both days will be offering first doses of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine. Second doses will not be available, and these walk-in clinics are only open to people who have not already received any dose of a vaccine.

Michael Fitzgerald,  Chief Officer Cork Kerry Community Healthcare said that staff at the centre have already offered appointments by text to anyone from the area who registered online at www.hse.ie.

“This is an opportunity for anyone in Kerry who may have missed an appointment to get their first vaccination. It will also allow anyone who has not registered online yet to get their first dose. Given the wide geographic area that we cover, we are pleased to be able to offer this additional opportunity to the local population aged 18 and over to get their first dose.”

Anyone who wishes to receive a vaccine at the clinics must:

–  Be aged 18 or over.

–  Be attending for their first dose, as it will not be possible to administer second doses.

–  Bring photographic ID.

–  Bring their PPS number.

Mr Fitzgerald continued: “You will not be able to receive a vaccine without photo ID and your PPS number. We need your PPS number to register you on the system so that you are called for your second dose when it’s due.”
