Minister For Further And Higher Education Announces Pop-Up Vaccination Centres To Open On College Campuses Later This Month
The Minister for Further and Higher Education has announced that pop-up vaccination centres are to open on college campuses later this month.
Minister Simon Harris says it’s aimed at getting even more students fully vaccinated.
Latest figures show 78 percent of people aged 16 to 29 are fully vaccinated, compared to 90 percent of the overall adult population.
Minister Harris says the pop up clinics will roll-out nationwide:
“22 colleges across the country will benefit from these initiatives through a combination of the fact that some already are homes to vaccine centres, some will see pop-up vaccine clinics, and others will see the Student GP Services providing vaccinations as well – so this will be hugely significant. I really do need to thank the vaccination teams and the HSE for working so closely with my department on this.”
