Pop-up vaccination centres are opening at colleges across the country next week.

The clinics will provide first or second doses to college staff and students who need them as part of ‘Vaccination Week.’

The drive aims to maximise vaccination by targeting anyone who has yet to get the jab alongside international students.

The 11 pop-up clinics are opening in:

  • University College Cork
  • NUI Galway
  • Trinity College Dublin
  • University of Limerick
  • Dublin City University
  • Maynooth University
  • Munster Technological University Cork
  • Mary Immaculate College
  • Royal College of Surgeons Ireland
  • National College of Art and Design
  • Athlone Institute of Technology

Meanwhile the clinic already operating at UCD and at Letterkenny, Sligo and Waterford Institutes of technology will be available on a walk-in basis to students and staff throughout the week.

The Minister for Further Education Simon Harris said: “Next week, thousands of students will start college for the first time. It is an incredibly exciting time for our third level sector.

“To coincide with this, my Department and the HSE have been working together to ensure we are doing everything we can to make our third level campuses as safe as is possible.

“There is no greater protection from COVID-19 than the vaccine. We have already seen a great uptake from young people and Vaccination Week offers anyone who hasn’t received their first or second dose to seek protection.”

Face masks will also be distributed at over 200 locations around the country in the coming weeks.
