Nenagh Vaccination Centre is up and running

The HSE is pleased to confirm that the area vaccination centres for Nenagh opened on Wednesday, April 21st.

The centre in the Abbey Court Hotel has opened on a phased basis, scaling up in line with availability of vaccines. Along with the centres in Ennis and at the Radisson Blu Limerick, the facilities form a tripartite vaccination network to accelerate the delivery of Covid-19 vaccine in the Mid-West.

The first to receive the Covid-19 vaccine on the opening day of the area vaccination centre at the Abbey Court Hotel, Nenagh, was Helen Tucker, from Newtown, Nenagh.

Activity at the Ennis and Nenagh centres commenced with the 65-69-year-old group who have been registering in considerable numbers since the opening of the HSE online registration portal last Thursday.

Colette Cowan, CEO, UL Hospitals Group and Chairperson of the Mid-West Integrated Covid 19 Vaccination Steering Group, said: “We are delighted to now open vaccination centres in Ennis and Nenagh a few days in advance of our initial planned date. Over 130,000 people in the 65-69-year-old cohort around the country have already registered for their Covid-19 vaccination and appointments are being offered at the most convenient location based on the information submitted during registration. People can register online at https://vaccine.hse.ie/, and they will be asked for their mobile phone number, email address, PPS number and Eircode. Telephone registration is also available at HSELive on 1850-24-1850 for those unable to register online, and there are options for those who are deaf or hard of hearing. The portal and the phone line remain open for those aged 65 and over and we expect to start allocating appointment slots in our MidWest vaccination centres to the younger age groups as the national plan progresses.”
