Pop-up vaccination centres open on college campuses today

The Health Service Executive (HSE) will begin operating pop-up vaccination centres across college campuses from today.

The campaign involves 30 third-level institutions, with temporary vaccination sites set up in 15 states.

The pop-up centres are available for all to avail of, and the HSE is encouraging anyone who wishes to receive a vaccine to attend for their first or second doses.

The aim of the programme is to maximise vaccine uptake in those who have not yet availed of the service, including international students.

The HSE Work Stream Lead Vaccination Process and Workforce David Walsh said: “Young people across Ireland have demonstrated their support for the vaccination programme and the incredible uptake rates have shown this.”

“The aim of this Vaccination Week is to enhance and promote vaccination uptake among young people as they start or go back to college this month and to ensure any students, who have not been vaccinated yet, including international students, have the option to be protected.”
