Irelands First Drive -thru Vaccination Clinic.
About The Flu Vaccine.
This year, the seasonal flu vaccine protects against the 4 strains of flu virus recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the strains most likely to be circulating this season.
The flu viruses that are circulating change every year. This is why you need to get a new vaccine each year.
You should get your flu vaccination from early October to be protected for flu season.

Who We Are.
We are a collective of GPs from around Midleton that have pooled our resources to bring the most timely and safe care to the people of East Cork and beyond.
With the help of the Defence Forces -who are erecting our Tent- we will have a 6 week campaign of immunisation.
We offer this service to give you the best chance at staying healthy this Winter by delivering the Flu Vaccine in a safe, efficient and accessible way for as many people as possible.
By giving the flu vaccine in a dedicated out-of-hours setting in this manner we can:
1. Deliver a high volume of vaccines to the population.
2. Keep our daytime practices free for acute/chronic care.
3. Keep our population / patients / staff and HCWs safe by reducing contact time and proximity.
4. Minimise disruption / inconvenice to people by having a rapid service.
This year, it is more important than ever that we take every precaution necessary to ensure the good health and wellbeing of ourselves and those around us. Getting the flu vaccination is an easy and accessible way to reduce your risk of becoming ill this Winter.
