Vaccine registration opens for those in their 50s today

From today, those aged 50-59 can now register for the Covid-19 vaccine which will take place on a phased basis.

People aged 59 are the first to be invited to register on the online portal with the remaining 50-58 age group being invited over the next ten days.

This comes as the HSE advises the inoculation of those in older age groups before younger people as they are considered to be more at risk.

The current vaccine plan will see the AstraZeneca and J&J vaccine being used in those who are under 50 if no other vaccines are available. The HSE plans to vaccinate 220,000 to 240,000 people this week.

In order to register online people will need their mobile number, PPS number, email address and Eircode.
