MORE than 2000 colourful artwork posters were received from children all over Cork and beyond to decorate the entrance corridor to the vaccination centre at South Infirmary Victoria University Hospital.

  
Around 260-300 people are being vaccinated at the hospital each day, from Monday to Friday, and the brightly decorated entrance corridor is a big hit with those attending, according to competition organiser Colm Murray.
