Coronavirus Vaccination Information
Our Covid19 vaccination rollout began in February and finishing second dose vaccination for Cohort’s 4 and 7. Please visit our vaccines page for further information on the vaccine rollout.
Cohort 4 and 7 rollout is nearly complete. Applications for cohort 4 or 7 to be vaccinated at Chapelizod Medical Centre closed on Tuesday 11th May. Form submissions will not be accepted after this closing date. The practice has now ended our involvement in this phase of the vaccination programme.
Update to vaccine rollout for patients aged 60-69 – These patients will now be vaccinated with Astra Zeneca in mass vaccine clinics, regardless of risk category and are invited to register on the HSE portal, starting 15th April, please see further information and registration link here
Please note, we will not be able to accommodate patients in the 60-69 group who would prefer the Pfizer vaccine over Astra Zeneca, there is no choice at present in vaccines and we would encourage everyone to take the vaccine they are offered. Astra Zeneca is proven to be safe and effective, particularly in the population over 60 that it is being rolled out in, we would strongly encourage our patients to take it when offered.
We are asking patients not to ring the surgery with vaccine queries. This is in order to keep our phone lines open for patients in need of urgent medical care.
