There was good news this week for North Cork people in the 65-69 age group when it was confirmed that the Covid-19 vaccination centre in Mallow GAA Complex will open next Thursday, 29th April. The centre is based in the indoor Astro hall at Carrigoon and has been ready to go for the past number of weeks.
The news was welcomed by Deputy Seán Sherlock TD who said, “It will be a great boost for people across North Cork that vaccinations start in Mallow next week. Despite some setbacks in the vaccination rollout, I am hopeful – by vaccinations happening on such a large scale next week in Mallow – that we can see the end of these restrictions and the further reopening of society.”
The centre will first vaccinate people who have made appointments online at or by ringing 1850 24 1850. Vaccination will be by appointment, and only people who have received a confirmed appointment from the HSE should attend at the vaccination centre. They should also bring photo ID. Registration is still open for anyone aged 65 to 69 at and on 1850 24 1850 (8am to 8pm, seven days a week).
The centre will continue to be used as the vaccination roll-out continues and moves through the diff-erent vaccine allocation groups.
Michael Fitzgerald, Chief Officer of Cork Kerry Community Healthcare, thanked the staff involved in all stages of getting the centre set up and ready to schedule appointments. “This has been a considerable undertaking, from planning to fit-out, from training to scheduling. Staff in Mallow will be delighted to see people from the age-group 65 to 69 arriving for their appointments from Thursday April 29th. I can reassure everyone with an appointment that staff at the centre will give you a warm welcome and will guide you through the entire vaccination process.”
