The Health Service Executive has said it has asked vaccination centres to facilitate people to get their booster vaccine after three months of the second vaccine.
The HSE said it has issued this advice pending the update of its IT system.
The move comes after the National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) recommended that the gap between primary vaccination and booster could be reduced to three months.
Vaccine centres are asked to facilitate this new guidance, if other criteria is met.
Up until this point, the gap was five months after primary vaccine.
The HSE said in order to give people maximum opportunity to get their booster and to use all capacity in the programme it is using vaccination centres, GPs and pharmacies as vaccinations channels.
