The vaccination centre in City Hall in Cork, which has been established as a joint project between the South/South West Hospital Group and Cork Kerry Community Healthcare will become operational from 8 m tomorrow morning, April 2nd for frontline healthcare workers only.
The Cork City Hall vaccination centre will be opened from 8am to 8pm on the April 2nd with 10 booths fully operational, and it is expected to have up to 30 booths when fully operational and open to the public.
It is planned that between 750 to 800 frontline healthcare workers, who have already received appointments, will be administered the vaccine.
