Every county in Ireland will have at least one COVID-19 vaccination centre, the Department of Health has confirmed.

It has announced the location of 37 centres nationwide, which will "support the vaccination of the general population in a safe and efficient manner".

"While currently vaccines are being administered in healthcare settings and by GPs, many people will be offered their vaccination in these centres, having self-registered online," the department noted.

The centres have been selected based on population density, ease of access, transport links and parking. They will vary in size and operating hours depending on the vaccine supply and the need in the area.

Locations include hotels, GAA clubs and college campuses.

The Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly, insisted that the centres will be "ready well in advance of vaccine supply" and people "can expect to see them ready and waiting in their county".
