The list of Covid-19 vaccination centres for every county in Ireland can be revealed for the first time.

Health Minister Stephen Donnelly confirmed the locations this afternoon, with at least one in each county.

A total of 37 centres will be set up across the country where members of the public will be able to get the Covid-19 vaccination.

While currently vaccines are being administered in healthcare settings and by GPs, many people will be offered their vaccination in these centres, having self-registered online, the Department of Health said.

All of the centres will vary in both size and operating hours and, according to the Department of Health, were chosen based on population density, ease of access, transport and parking. Vaccine supply will also influence how long the centres stay open every day.

Mr Donnelly thanked the HSE for their ongoing work in developing these centres saying: “These centres will be ready well in advance of vaccine supply when they will be used as part of our programme.

“We have always said the vaccination programme would only be limited by the availability and reliability of supply in these early stages of the programme.

"In the coming months supply will increase substantially and we will see these centres operating to full capacity and administering vaccines to the general population, following the Government priority list,” he added.

Cork, Dublin, Kerry, Tipperary, Westmeath and Wicklow will all have at least two centres, with Cork having the most at five.

The government had previously announced some of the centres, including Cork City Hall and The Helix in DCU campus.

It is expected that 500 people could be vaccinated every hour at The Helix which is set to open from 8am to 8pm, depending on supply.

Healthcare workers have already received their vaccinations at these centres, and the main focus over the coming weeks will be to vaccinate first those over the age of 85, and then those over the age of 70.
