The HSE’s Vaccination Centre in Kilkenny and Tipperary are ready for operation as part of the roll out of the Covid 19 vaccine.
Vaccination Centres, such as the one located in the The Hub at Cillín Hill, Kilkenny and the Clonmel Park Hotel, are in addition to locations such as GP surgeries and pharmacies where vaccines will also be delivered.
The Vaccination Centres will come on stream as needed from late March/early April.
The facilities will be available for a minimum of six months.

The utilisation of the Vaccination Centres will be dependent on staffing and vaccine availability. Existing vaccinators will continue to support, where possible, the roll out of the Covid-19 Vaccination Programme at local level across all sites identified.
There's no charge for getting your Covid-19 vaccine. It is free. The HSE’s aim in offering vaccines to the population is to protect people and reduce the illness and deaths caused by this virus.
At the moment, people do not need to register for vaccination in advance.
