Curraheen Clinic Covid-19 Vaccination Programme 2021
Vaccination Clinic Update
We have now completed our vaccination programmes for the over 70s and for our high risk and very high risk groups. Vaccination clinics here at Curraheen Clinic will continue at a reduced level over the summer. The supply available will only be known 2 weeks in advance so planning in advance of this is not possible. The national roll out will also be continuing through the summer and we advise you to register via the portal once it is your turn. www.hse.ie
If you are a patient of Curraheen Clinic and would like to register your interest with us please complete the questionnaire below and we will keep your name on file. We will also be working through age cohorts.
If you believe that you fall into a higher risk category and haven’t received a vaccine to-date please send us an email with your details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can get further information on Covid-19 vaccines from the HSE website which can be accessed from this link
When you attend for vaccination please wear short sleeves or a loose neck top. You will need to wait in the surgery for 15 minutes after the vaccine has been administered.
The Pfizer/BioNTech Comirnaty vaccine is an mRNA vaccine that teaches your body to make a protein that will trigger an immune response. It does not use a live virus.
Please do not take the vaccine if you ever have had a severe allergic reaction to any of the substances in the vaccine. Please read the patient information leaflet to see the list of substances in the vaccine. This information can be found at this link
Do not attend for vaccination if you are currently sick with a high temperature > 38C
Please inform the practice if you have ever had a severe allergic reaction after any other vaccine
How the vaccine is given
The vaccine is given into the muscle in your upper arm. You will receive 2 injections 28 days apart. You will be given your second appointment when you attend for your first vaccine.
All vaccines can cause side-effects. Most of these are mild and self-limiting. More information is available on the links above.
