UL Hospitals Group can confirm that the vaccination centre at the Radisson Blu Hotel Limerick will relocate to Limerick Racecourse in the coming weeks.
With the opening up of hospitality services and the scaling up of the vaccination programme, plans are now being put in place to open a new vaccination centre at Limerick Racecourse on a phased basis during June. Having reviewed the anticipated vaccine supply availability for the coming months and the infrastructural requirements needed, the Limerick Racecourse facility has been identified as having the capability to provide that capacity.
The relocation of the vaccination centre from the Radission Blu Hotel to Limerick Racecourse coincides with the resumption of hospitality services in line with the Government’s reopening plan. From an overall Mid-West perspective, the vaccination centres at Treacy’s West County Hotel, Ennis, and the Abbey Court Hotel, Nenagh, which are smaller centres, are intended to continue in operation and at an increased level over the coming months, notwithstanding the reopening of these hotels.
It is anticipated this bus service will be up and running in the coming weeks, and will then transfer to the new centre at Limerick Racecourse. We continue to work with our intra-agency partners, including Gardaí and local authorities, on traffic management plans for all centres.
