POLL: Would you take a Covid-19 booster vaccine?

The Department of Health confirmed this week that a booster Covid-19 vaccine will be offered to everyone in Ireland over the age of 80, as well as over-65s who live in residential care homes.

It remains unclear whether younger people, or those who are otherwise healthy will be offered a booster vaccine as the programme progresses.

-AD-

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said booster vaccines should not be administered, but instead the vaccines should be offered to developing countries, who for the most part have low vaccination rates.

Nevertheless, the National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) gave advice, which was agreed on by the Chief Medical Officer, that booster shots should be administered to the elderly.

If you are offered a booster vaccine, will you take it?

-AD-

Or, will you turn it down?
