POLL: Should booster Covid-19 vaccines be extended to all age groups?

Currently in Ireland, booster Covid-19 vaccines are being offered to people aged 60-years-old and older, as well as those who are immunocompromised.

Likewise, healthcare workers are also being offered booster jabs.


The UK revealed today that they will expand booster vaccines to everyone over the age of 40.

Professor Wei Shen Lim of the JCVI further said people under the age of 40 may be offered a third vaccine in the future.

There is ongoing discussion about expanding the booster vaccine campaign in Ireland.


Do you believe the booster vaccine campaign should be expanded to all age groups?

Or, do you believe the double vaccine course was enough and there is no need for the majority of people to get a booster?

Should booster Covid-19 vaccines be extended to all age groups?
