McKesson Ireland offers COVID-19 vaccines at LloydsPharmacy

LloydsPharmacy (part of the McKesson family) has joined the COVID-19 vaccination effort in the Republic of Ireland and from today will be administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to patients in five of its community pharmacies.  This week, the HSE approved the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine in a select number of pharmacies in Ireland.

Patients receiving their vaccines from the pharmacy do not need to register online. They just need to contact their pharmacy. Patients over the age of 50 can register directly with any of the five LloydsPharmacy stores, in person or via phone, to book their vaccine appointment. Pharmacies participating in the vaccine rollout will administer the Janssen/J&J one-shot vaccination initially.

Rebecca Barry, Supervising Pharmacist at LloydsPharmacy Castletroy said, “We are delighted and proud to have been selected by the HSE to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to the Limerick community. I would encourage anyone in Limerick over the age of fifty who has yet to receive their vaccination to book an appointment with us. All LloydsPharmacy stores administering the vaccine have a dedicated consultation room where the vaccination will take place. If you have any questions or concerns about the vaccine, drop into your local LloydsPharmacy to talk to a pharmacist.”

Along with LloydsPharmacy Castletroy, Co. Limerick, four other LloydsPharmacy stores have been selected by the HSE to administer the COVID-19 vaccine. They are LloydsPharmacy Ringsend, Dublin 4; Letterkenny, Co. Donegal; Charleville, Co. Cork; and Sky Court Shopping Centre, Shannon, Co. Clare. More information and details on how to register can be found on the dedicated LloydsPharmacy COVID-19 vaccine web page.

LloydsPharmacy stores are open late and over the weekend to help those with busy lifestyles. Regular updates on LloydsPharmacy stores are available at www.lloydspharmacy.ie and from the LloydsPharmacy official social media channels, along with tips and advice to keep you and your family well.
