Walk-in clinics for the Spring round of Covid-19 booster vaccines are set to continue over the coming days.
The HSE are strongly encouraging all eligible people to receive their spring booster for COVID-19.
Those aged over 70 and over 5 with a weak immune system are being advised to receive their booster.
People who are eligible can get the booster from a GP, pharmacy or one of the HSE community vaccination centres.
Vaccines are available at walk-in vaccination clinics around the country over the coming days and no appointment is needed.
HSE director of national health protection Dr Eamonn O'Moore said this latest booster will protect people from serious illness and boost their immunity.
“It's really important because although levels of COVID at the moment are thankfully low, we are aware that we can get surges in infection,” he said.
“We know that we have to think ahead to the winter period when we may see another seasonal surge, and it's really important that people get the vaccines that they're recommended.”
Dr O’Moore also warned that the service will not last for long.
“It's also very important to remind people that this spring campaign is time limited,” he said. “And so we're going to be stopping this programme in around mid-June.”
The latest figures on May 23 suggest there are 98 confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in Ireland and 239 positive antigen tests.
As of today, there 240 confirmed COVID-19 patients in hospital and 7 people in the intensive care unit as of last night.
