COVID-19: Vaccine registration for those aged 30-34 opens from today

From today, the online vaccine registration for those aged 30-34 has opened. This age cohort will be receiving mRNA vaccines such as Pfizer and Moderna.

Initially, this age group would begin registering for the vaccine on Friday but the date was moved to today.

-AD-

To date, over 50% of the Irish adult population has been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and 16.9% has been partially vaccinated.

As well as this, younger people have also been allowed to opt-in for the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine or the AstraZeneca vaccine since last Friday in an attempt to speed up the vaccine rollout.

This means that some young people will be vaccinated before their age cohort was scheduled to receive their vaccines.

-AD-

The online registration process follows the same procedure and order as it has for other age cohorts, starting with those aged 34 today and followed by those aged 33 tomorrow etc…

To register for the vaccine you need; your mobile phone number, PPS number, email address and Eircode.

It has been noted that earlier age cohorts will not be de-prioritised as a result of other age group’s registration opening today.

The online registration invitation is for everyone aged 30-34 which includes people in this age range who may be in another vaccine allocation group and have not yet been fully vaccinated.

People in this age group will be vaccinated in one of the HSE’s vaccination centres and will be sent a text message three to seven days before their appointment.
