Racecourse vaccination centre opens this morning

Thu, Feb 25, 2021

Shot in the arm - Mrs Monica Holland, aged 96, was the first person to receive the COVID vaccine in Turloughmore Health Centre on Tuesday afternoon as the vaccine was rolled out across the county this week. Pictured also is her vaccinator Dr Brendan Day, who is in his 42nd year of continuous medical practice in Turloughmore.

A team of vaccinators will begin innoculating healthcare workers at the Covid-19 vaccination centre at the Galway Racecourse this morning (Thursday).

The Ballybrit site, one of 37 such facilities throughout the country, opened today after extensive preparatory work. It is expected that the team there will begin vaccinating the general population by the middle of next month.

Tony Canavan, the chief executive of the seven public hospitals in the west and north-west, told this newspaper earlier this week that the physical and IT work was completed on the site on Tuesday evening. The vaccine teams moved out there yesterday.
