The University of Limerick is hosting a walk- in Covid-19 booster vaccination clinic on campus this week.
The clinic has been organised by the HSE in conjunction with the university and will take place on Wednesday, March 23.
The vaccination clinic will be open from 10am to 3pm in EG-010.
The HSE will also be offering doses one and two of Covid-19 vaccinations should anyone wish to avail.
They are asking those availing of the booster who were vaccinated abroad to please bring proof of their subsequent vaccinations.
If one has had Covid-19 after your first dose of vaccination, it is important to note that you must wait at least three months after your positive test result before seeking a booster appointment.
What do I need?
If interested, please bring a form of ID showing your date of birth along with your PPSN.
After vaccination, it takes seven days for the booster vaccine to begin fighting infection in the body.
After the seven-day period, the booster is effective in protecting one from serious cases of the Covid-19 virus.
Clinical studies are ongoing in order to determine how long the Covid-19 booster provides immunity to the body.
The success of Ireland’s coronavirus vaccination programme has been key to the reopening of society in Ireland.
If you have not had a chance to avail of a booster dose and are not available to attend on campus, you can find details of walk-in vaccination clinics in your area here.
