Enniscorthy district County Councillor Aidan Browne has written to the HSE and Wexford County Council seeking the location of a community vaccination centre in Enniscorthy.
Frontline healthcare workers are receiving the early batches of the COVID-19 vaccine. In the coming months, people in the community, including elderly people, will receive the vaccine at locations termed community vaccination centres.
Given Enniscorthy’s central location, Cllr Browne views that it’s important to identify an appropriate site for a mass vaccination centre in Enniscorthy as soon as possible.
“The Department of Health’s smooth distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine is a priority. I know the Government and public health officials are committed to rolling out the vaccine as promptly as possible. At a local level, it’s important that we’re ready to accommodate their work and identify suitable community vaccination centre sites in Enniscorthy and County Wexford.”
“As Enniscorthy is at the centre of the county, it’s important that a community vaccination centre is established to accommodate the inoculation of thousands of people from the Enniscorthy region. Having a centre in Enniscorthy will make it easy for people to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in a safe environment close to their own community.“
“I have written to the HSE and Wexford County Council explaining the need to identify a suitable site in the Enniscorthy area, which will be ready to serve as a COVID-19 community vaccination centre”, Cllr Browne concluded.
