Croke Park is the latest GAA stadium to become a vaccination centre as Ireland prepares to ramp up its vaccine rollout programme. The centre, which will have ten booths, will open in May.

Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Cork and the Aviva Stadium and Citywest Convention Centre in Dublin are among the other locations being prepared for an increase in capacity.

The Helix in DCU, which has already been involved in the vaccine rollout, will have 48 booths and the immediate priority is to have full capacity at this centre, according to the HSE.

Both centres will have the capacity to operate from 8am to 8pm by appointment seven days a week. Rollout will be dependent on a number of factors including vaccine supply.

“It is important to note vaccine roll-out plans must be flexible to accommodate unforeseen events and to operate in what is an evolving situation internationally,” said a spokesperson for the HSE.

HSE guidance advises that the appointment will take about 30 minutes including registration and observation when the vaccine has been administered.
