Noticeboard

 

COVID VACCINE Update 4th May  2021 Age 18-59 year old cohort 4 and 7 only.

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.

Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning
A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm. and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.
