Students who have yet to be vaccinated can now get their vaccine at a walk-in clinic on campus.

Pop-up clinics are opening their doors on Monday, as thousands of first years begin college.

The clinics will provide first or second doses to students and staff, and will operate on a walk-in basis.

Minister of State Niall Collins says: "Today thousands of students, many of them first years, are beginning an incredibly exciting chapter of their lives as they return to onsite studies.

"But the priority of this department has always been to coordinate this significant milestone as safely as possible.

"That is why today, in conjunction with the HSE, pop-up vaccination clinics are being opened at campuses across the country to ensure maximum take up among our student population.

"Young people deserve immense praise for how they’ve handled the past 18 months, and I want to wish them every success and happiness ahead of this historic academic year."

The pop-up clinics will be 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 (Technological University of the Shannon from October 1st)
  • Limerick Institute of Technology (Technological University of the Shannon from October 1st)
  • TU Dublin (All three campuses: Blanchardstown, Grangegorman and Tallaght)

The clinics in UCD, Letterkenny, Sligo and Waterford IT will be open to students and staff during Vaccination Week.

The Department of Further and Higher Education says the aim is to maximise vaccine uptake in those who have not yet availed of vaccination - including international students.

Students and staff are requested to check the opening days and times of the clinics, which can be done here.
