Over 30,000 people receive vaccine at walk in centres over the weekend


Over 30,000 people received a Covid 19 vaccine at walk in centres over the weekend.

It was predominantly younger people who received the jab, although an 83 year turned up at a centre in Sligo.

The CEO of the HSE says the walk in centres outstripped their expectations and says it shows young people showed up, when needed.

The HSE’s National Lead for the Vaccination Programme, Damien McCallion, says they may open them again.
