Vaccination centre in Fairways hotel
Anyone over the age of 18 in Dundalk can now register for an mRNA Covid-19 vaccine through the HSE’s online vaccine portal.
The announcement was made last night by Health Minister Stephen Donnelly, who said that it was possible due to the vaccination programme running ahead of schedule.
