The Health Service Executive has teamed up with dating sites in an attempt to encourage vaccine uptake.

They will be linking up with dating brands such as Tinder, Match, OKCupid, Hinge and Plenty of Fish.

The HSE stated that the aim is to encourage users of these dating apps to support and receive the Covid-19 vaccine.

As a result of this link-up, new features will be added to dating apps and websites which include free “super likes” in order to support the ‘For Us All’ campaign.

These features, which will run throughout July, were described by HSE chief Paul Reid as a great way to bring the campaign to a wider audience.

Reid stated, “The vaccination programme is a really important tool in our battle against Covid-19, and we’ve seen incredible support for the programme among the Irish people since we started,”.

The HSE has stated that showing an individual’s vaccine status will be a voluntary feature that users can decide if they want it disclosed.

Meanwhile, those aged 25-29 years old can now register for an mRNA vaccine from tomorrow.
