Galway Racecourse to be used as vaccination centre

Galway Daily news Galway Races won't be open to the public, if they take place at all

Galway Racecourse in Ballybrit will be used as the county’s only vaccination centre, the government has confirmed this afternoon.

A total of 37 vaccination sites were announced across the state, with at least one in every county to be used for the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines to the general population.

The confirmation comes as the country enters the third phase in the vaccine rollout programme.

GPs have started receiving vaccines today to be administered to people over the age of 85. Over 80,000 people will receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine over the next seven days.

GP surgeries which have over 200 patients aged 70 and above will vaccinate people within the medical centre itself, while for practices with fewer than 200 people over 70 years, the vaccines will be given at GP-led Vaccination Centres.
