Walk-in vaccination clinics will again be available in Kerry in the week ahead, as the last phase of the vaccination roll-out in the county continues.

Anyone eligible for a Pfizer BioNtech vaccine can receive a first or second dose without an appointment at either the Killarney Sports and Leisure or Kerry Sports Academy in Tralee next Sunday morning, between 9.15am and 10.15am.

Meanwhile, evening walk-in clinics will run at both Kerry vaccination centres next week, on Wednesday September 1 and Thursday September 2, from 4pm to 8pm.

The walk-in vaccination clinics will be open to any eligible person aged 12 or over. Anyone aged between 12 and 15 years must be accompanied by an adult, and will need the consent of a parent or guardian before vaccination.

DOCUMENTATION

Those attending for either a first or second dose should check hse.ie to make sure they are eligible and that they bring all necessary documentation e.g. those hoping to receive a second dose should bring proof of their first dose vaccination (e.g. your vaccination card) and photo ID.

For anyone waiting for a second dose, it does not matter where you received your first dose as you can still attend.

Peggy Horan, vaccination project lead with Cork Kerry Community Healthcare, said the team at both vaccination centres are looking forward to welcoming people to the walk-in clinics, and will be available to give any reassurance needed about the vaccination process.

“We hope that the later walk-in clinics, running until 8pm, will be useful to people leaving work who may not have been in a position to attend previous walk-in clinics in the county. We’d encourage employers to share the details of the upcoming clinics in both Killarney and Tralee with their staff. They may also suit people leaving secondary school, either young people or their parents. We really hope that these clinics will encourage anyone still considering getting their vaccine to come along, walk-in and get their vaccine in a safe setting, with a warm welcome from our friendly staff.”

London-based South Kerry man, Dan Tim O’Sullivan, will exercise his rights as a Freeman of the city by herding sheep over a London bridge on Sunday.

Mr O’Sullivan from Kells, was awarded the Freedom of the City of London in 2019, in recognition for his work in the construction industry.

He employs over one thousand people through his labour hire firm ‘Danny Sullivan and Sons’, and has employed countless Kerry people, many of them from his native South Kerry, since its foundation in the mid-1980s.

The Freedom of the City of London allows the bearer to herd one hundred sheep over the landmark Tower Bridge.

However, logistical issues and traffic management plans mean the number of sheep has been reduced to less than 10 and the event will now take place over nearby Southwark Bridge.

London-based news channels, including the BBC, are expected to cover the event while hundreds of his family and friends from South Kerry will be in London to witness the unique event.
