The Sligo Covid-19 Vaccination Centre (CVC) has moved from its temporary location. The Centre will now be located on the same site as Sligo Covid-19 Testing Centre at the old Sligo Development Centre (also referred to locally as 'the old tax office') on the Cleveragh Road, behind McCranns Londis. The eircode for the centre is F91 W2KH.

The first vaccination clinic took place in the new centre on Friday July 1st at 8.30am. Sligo CVC will continue to provide:

·       Dose 1 and Dose 2 vaccinations for those aged 5-11 years

·       Dose 1 and Dose 2 and First Booster vaccinations to those aged 12 years and over

·       Second Booster vaccinations for those aged 65 and the immunocompromised

Operational Site Manager at Sligo CVC Shona Gallagher said “We offer Dose 1, Dose 2 and First Booster vaccinations to eligible cohorts. We also offer Second Booster vaccinations those aged 12 years and over with a weak immune system, and a Second Booster vaccination to those aged 65 years and over. We are open in Sligo every Thursday, Friday and Saturday for those who wish to avail of the service. With an increase in the number of cases of COVID-19 the HSE is encouraging anyone who has not yet received their Covid vaccine to do so, as vaccination is the best way of protecting yourself against COVID-19.”
