Covid Booster Programme

Glanmire Medical centre will prioritise the covid vaccine booster rollout for the next 4 weeks as instructed by HSE to curb the spread of the Omicron variant of Covid-19. Please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment on 0214821280. The following criteria applies to qualify for this vaccine programme.

You must:

  • be a registered patient of Glanmire Medical Centre
  • Over 16 years of age
  • Three months or over since your last covid vaccination

We will prioritise patients with underlying medical conditions and patients over 40 initially.

If you are fully vaccinated and had Covid 19, you need to wait until you have been 6 months since your covid 19 infection to receive a booster dose.

If you only go the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine and developed Covid 19 infection you can have a second dose but not a booster four weeks after your Covid 19 infection.

If you are over 16 and have not yet received a vaccine or are due a second dose, you can still book an appointment

Over the next 4 weeks we will continue to see patients prioritising urgent cases only. Routine check-ups will be deferred until the middle of January 2022. Thank in advance for your patience and understanding.
