A walk-in Covid-19 vaccination centre is set to operate in Louth this weekend, with anyone over the age of 16 able to access a first dose.

The vaccines administered will be Pfizer or Moderna.

Walk-ins for first doses will be permitted on two days so far, on Sunday August 1st and Monday August 2nd.

DIFE Drogheda is currently the only walk-in vaccination centre in Louth at present, while the Fairways Hotel will continue to administer vaccines on an appointment basis.

Anyone interested in accessing the walk-in centre can receive a first dose vaccination at the following times:

  • On Sunday, from between 1:15pm and 4:15pm
  • On Monday, between 9:15am and 12:15am, as well as 1:15pm until 4:15pm.
