The COVID-19 Vaccination Centre in Sligo is in the process of relocating from IT Sligo to the Sligo Racecourse and the first clinics are due to take place in the new location next week.
Paul Hooton, Saolta Executive Lead for the rollout of the vaccination programme in the West and North West said, “I would like to acknowledge the co-operation and support that we received from IT Sligo over the past 8 months. Since the first clinic in February we administered 110,000 vaccinations from the Knocknarea Arena. This is a huge achievement and a tribute to the immense work by the vaccination team in County Sligo.
“We are now relocating the Sligo Vaccination Centre to the Sligo Racecourse where we will be running both appointment-based and walk-in clinics. Anyone who received their first dose in the IT Sligo Vaccination Centre will automatically receive a text message advising them to go to the Sligo Racecourse Vaccination Centre to get their second vaccine.
“It is not too late to get your COVID-19 vaccination. Go to hse.ie to register online to get a vaccine at a vaccination centre. Or to register by telephone, call 1800 700 700, Monday to Friday between 8am and 8pm or on Saturday and Sunday between 9am and 5pm.”
Cara O’Neill, COVID-19 Vaccination Lead for Community Healthcare Organisation Area 1 stated, “We would encourage anyone who hasn’t yet availed of the opportunity of getting a vaccination, to do so at the new site of the vaccination clinic at the Sligo Racecourse in Cleveragh. We look forward to continuing to work in collaboration with Saolta on the continued rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine in Sligo.”
