The Covid-19 vaccination portal will open for those aged 12-15 from next Thursday, August 12th.
Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly urged parents to seek accurate information regarding Covid-19 vaccines when deciding on vaccinating their children, including getting information from the HSE website.
The HSE said the portal will open for this age cohort next Thursday, where parents will be able to register their children for a vaccine.
The National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) recommended that children should be offered an mRNA vaccine, such as the Pfizer or Moderna.
During clinical trials, the efficacy of both vaccines in children in this age cohort was 100%.
Minister Donnelly said both GP surgeries and vaccine centres will be involved in the rollout for this age cohort.
