The online vaccine portal will be open for those aged 35 to 39 this Sunday, according to Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly.

The first group to receive their vaccines will be those aged 39 who will be allowed to register on Sunday with those aged 38 on Monday etc…

This age group is to be offered mRNA vaccines such as Pfizer and Moderna.

Sources state that the vaccine delivery programme has reached a new high with Taoiseach Micheál Martin stating that approximately 340,000 doses of the vaccine can be delivered in a week.

This corresponding scaling up of the vaccination administration is to continue throughout June.

The increase in vaccine administration comes as part of the government’s plan to have 70% of Irish adults fully vaccinated by the end of July.

They added that the profile of the vaccine programme will change over July as the main future focus will be on Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

The AstraZeneca vaccine will still be used but only for people whose first vaccine dose was AstraZeneca.

In order to register for the vaccine through the online portal you need a mobile number, PPS number, email address and eircode.

These figures have left Minister for Higher Education Simon Harris feeling very optimistic about the return to on-campus lectures for students.

You can register online through the HSE website or by calling 1800 851 500. Additionally, there is a HSE text line available for people with hearing issues which can be contacted at 086 1800 661.
