Good jab! World-famous tenor on song to deliver Kilkenny’s 35,000th vaccine
Staff at the HSE’s Covid-19 Vaccination Centre at Cillín Hill in Kilkenny have delivered their 35,000th dose.
There was a pleasant surprise on hand for Ballyhale woman Angela O’ Sullivan when she received the landmark jab number 35,000 yesterday from a famous face.
Dr Ronan Tynan, the internationally renowned tenor singer from Johnstown, has been part of the team at the Kilkenny Vaccination Centre in The Hub at Cillín Hill – a venue in which he performed previously in front of 1,800 people.
Vaccination Centres, such as the one located in the The Hub in Cillín Hill, Kilkenny and the Barrow Centre in IT Carlow, have operated in addition to locations such as hospitals, residential care centres and GP surgeries during the roll out.
The Vaccination Centres came on stream, as needed, from late March/early April – in the South East, at locations in Carlow, Clonmel, Enniscorthy, Kilkenny and Waterford.
Organised as a partnership between St. Luke’s General Hospital Carlow/Kilkenny (of the Ireland East Hospital Group) and South East Community Healthcare. The HSE’s Vaccination Centre in Kilkenny came on stream in April and followed on the vaccination of healthcare workers and other cohorts at St. Luke’s from January onwards.
