On 15 February, I announced 37 HSE Vaccination Centres, with at least one for every county. These centres will support the vaccination of the general population in a safe and efficient manner.

While currently vaccines are being administered in healthcare settings and by GPs in communities, many people will be offered their vaccination in these centres, having self-registered online. Each centre varies in size and operating hours and they have been selected based on population density, ease of access, transport and parking.

Question No. 1019 answered with Question No. 816.
