The HSE is reporting high numbers turning up at walk-in Covid vaccination centres across the country.
Punchestown Racecourse is one of 20 nationwide centres which opened on Saturday morning.
The Kildare clinic was available for walk in vaccinations from 9 am to 12.15pm
It will re-open between 1.15 and 4.30 on Sunday afternoon and will be open again on Monday between 9 and 12.15.
