We have received a large number of applications for the vaccine in this age group over the past 7 days. We regret that we do not have enough vaccines to vaccinate all applicants. We have now closed this application process as we are prioritizing all the applications we have received.
Please do not phone reception to enquire about your application as reception staff have no access to the vaccination appointment system and are unable to advise you. You will receive a text to notify you of an appointment time if you are to receive the vaccine in The Cedar Clinic.
We recommend all patients to register on the HSE portal for the vaccine when advised by the HSE according to your age group. This is even if you have applied for the vaccine in The Cedar Clinic, as you may not qualify for the vaccine in the Cedar Clinic due to the number of applications we have received. If we call you for the vaccine, please cancel your HSE application then in order to free up a space for someone else.
For all Covid-19 Coronavirus information please contact the HSE website www.hse.ie/Coronavirus/information
