The online booking portal will open next week for the 50-59 age cohort, Micheál Martin has announced.
During his speech to the nation tonight the Taoiseach paid tribute to the people who have used the portal already.
“You have responded extremely positively to the launch of the online portal, and I’m pleased to confirm that over the course of next week, the portal will open for registration to all those aged 50-59,” he said.
The Taoiseach said during his speech that by tonight, more than 1.5 million vaccine doses will have been administered.
“That means close to 30% of everyone over 16 has received at least one dose of the vaccine,” he said.
People can register for their Covid-19 vaccine on the HSE website.
