The locations of 37 mass vaccination centres where Covid-19 vaccines will be rolled out to the general population have been confirmed.

At least one centre will be located in each county across the State, the Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly said on Monday.

Vaccines are currently being administered in healthcare settings and GP surgeries. However, once the Republic's rollout ramps up, many people will be offered their vaccination in these centres after self-registering online.

The locations include hotels, conference centres, sports arenas and a golf club. Each has been selected based on population density, ease of access, transport and parking, the Department of Health said.

Size and operating hours — based on vaccine supply and catchment area need — will vary in each, while the design and layout of the centres will also incorporate "learnings" from Covid-19 swabbing centres.

In a statement, Minister Donnelly said: “I would like to thank the HSE for their ongoing work in developing these vaccination centres across the country.

“These centres will be ready well in advance of vaccine supply when they will be used as part of our programme. People can expect to see these vaccination centres ready and waiting in their county.”

Minister Donnelly continued: “We have always said the vaccination programme would only be limited by the availability and reliability of supply in these early stages of the programme.

“In the coming months supply will increase substantially and we will see these centres operating to full capacity and administering vaccines to the general population, following the Government priority list.”
