How will I know when it’s my turn?
Please do not call the surgery.
Patients will receive a text message inviting them to book their vaccine online by using a link provided in the text. This text will be sent approximately 10 days before your vaccine is due to be administered. We would ask, where possible, that appointments are booked online either by clicking the link in the text or visiting www.mainstreetcliniclucan.ie.
What happens on the day of the vaccine?
Please arrive on time for your appointment. We ask that when attending for your vaccine that you wear short sleeved clothing. Following your vaccine, you will be asked to wait in the surgery for 15 minutes. Due to space restrictions, and to allow for social distancing we ask that you attend alone where possible.
How many vaccines will I need?
You will receive two vaccinations approximately four weeks apart. You need both vaccinations to complete the course.
What do I need to do?
Please be patient. We will contact you. We will keep our website (www.mainstreetcliniclucan.ie) updated and you informed. You will be invited to make an appointment when it is your turn.
For general queries, please visit our website (www.mainstreetcliniclucan.ie) before calling the surgery, the information you need is likely to be available there and information will be updated regularly.
