We will be doing our best to administer as many boosters as possible over the next four weeks here at the Healthcentre. NEXT CLINIC THURSDAY 6th JANUARY 2022 (Please ring for apt if over 16, three months since last vaccination/or covid19)
The Omicron variant is a significant threat to our health service: while there is some data showing that infections are less severe, the transmissibility of it means that it may overwhelm both the hospitals and General Practice.
Clearly this will impact our usual services. As of today, we are pausing the following, so that we can prioritise vaccination as requested by the Department of Health and the HSE:
- Routine smears
- Medicolegal report examinations
- General Healthchecks
The laboratory are reducing their service to GPs over the Christmas period, so we will not be doing routine bloods until the New Year.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are unwell: we remain open, and are seeing patients as usual every day: we are only postponing non-urgent care, and you can rest assured that we will return to this as soon as possible.
If you are eligible for COVID booster vaccination, please contact reception to make an appointment: phones are exceptionally busy at the moment so please be patient!
Many thanks for your understanding, and we hope to see you for your booster very soon!
