HSE urges more people to get their COVID-19 vaccine or booster

The HSE is urging those who are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine or a booster and who have not yet received it to get their vaccine. This is particularly important given the recent increase in the numbers of confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Details on how to book a COVID-19 vaccine can be found here and information on the vaccine is available at www.hse.ie

Getting your child vaccinated is a decision between you and your child. If parents have any questions regarding your child’s vaccination then please speak to staff at our vaccination centres, they will be available to provide you with further information.

It’s important that you do not go to a vaccination centre if you have Covid-19; if you have symptoms of Covid-19 or if you have been told to restrict your movements.

It’s also important to check your eligibility online on hse.ie before you self-schedule your appointment, bearing in mind that if you are in the 16+ age group you need to wait three months (at least 90 days) after your first round of Covid-19 vaccination before you can get a booster and if you had Covid-19 since you were vaccinated, you should get your booster dose at least three months after your positive test result.

If you are in the 12-15 age group you need to wait six months (at least 179 days) after receiving your second dose of Covid-19 vaccination before you can get a booster and if you had Covid-19 since you were vaccinated, you should get your booster dose at least six months after your positive test result.
