When 100 year old Maureen Dowley arrived at her local HSE COVID-19 Vaccination Centre in Kilkenny today, she was given a pleasant surprise.


Maureen, along with her daughter Yvonne O’ Dwyer, were at the facility in the Cillín Hill Event Centre for appointments to receive their “booster” vaccine.


Maureen Dowley (a native of High Street but now living with her daughter Yvonne in Leggetsrath, Kilkenny) was greeted at the door by HSE/South East Community Healthcare Site Operations Manager for the Kilkenny Vaccination Centre Patricia McQuillan, along with security officer John Curran and vaccinating team member Heather Woods.


Upon being presented with flowers and chocolates, Maureen was wheeled to booth #10 to receive her booster vaccine from Heather. Along the way, all present at the Kilkenny Centre afforded Maureen a standing ovation.


Born in September 1921, Maureen was 99 when she received her first COVID-19 vaccine earlier this year. Maureen said everyone should take up the opportunity to be vaccinated and to subsequently avail of the booster if it is offered to them.
