Healthcare workers COVID-19 vaccine registration

If you are a frontline healthcare worker, you can register for your COVID-19 vaccine if you work in a:

  • HSE or HSE-funded organisation
  • private hospital or clinics
  • community based not-for-profit or private healthcare provider not directly funded by the HSE

Registration is not open to members of the public or other groups yet.

COVID-19 vaccine registration support contact

If you have problems completing the registration online contact our customer support team.

You can also call the HSELive vaccine helpline on 01 240 8746.

The helpline is open 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

When other groups can register

We are currently accepting registrations from frontline healthcare workers.

We will let all other healthcare workers know when it is time to register.

This includes:

  • healthcare workers not in direct patient or service user contact
  • people providing essential health services, for example, management, administration
  • other non-patient or service user facing personnel

This is in line with the government’s provisional vaccine allocation groups.

People over the age of 70 are the next group to be vaccinated. We will offer vaccines to other groups as vaccine supply becomes available.

Read more about the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines.

Before you register

You will need to identify what group you are in from page 2 of our sequencing guidance document.

Appointments will be scheduled based on the priority group you are in. How early you register will have no impact on how quickly you will get the vaccine.

You will not get your vaccine unless you register through the healthcare worker COVID-19 vaccines portal.

You need a Personal Public Service (PPS) number to register online. Talk to your line manager if you do not have one. They will tell you how you can get your vaccine.

If you have already been invited to get your vaccine or have had your vaccine, you do not need to register.

After you register

Once you register, you will get a confirmation email.

You will later receive another email with a:

  • vaccine appointment date
  • vaccine appointment date location
  • link to give your consent for your vaccine

If you have trouble using the link to give your consent, talk to your line manager.

Your vaccination appointment

You will not receive an appointment immediately after you register.

Appointments will be prioritised based on the Guidelines for sequencing and registration process for HCW COVID vaccination (4 pages, 784.19KB, pdf).

You will need to bring photo ID and proof of employment to your appointment.

Updating or changing your registration details

To update or change your details after you have registered:

  1. Log in to the registration portal using the email address that you registered with.
  2. Click on the ‘My Profile’ link in the top right hand corner of the screen.
  3. Select ‘My Profile’ and click on the edit button.

If you have problems updating your information, click on the link at the top of the page for 'registration portal support issues'. You can use this online form to contact the registration support team.

You may see a message saying: 'Sorry, as your registration status does not meet the required field criteria to continue, you are not allowed to proceed further'.

This does not mean you will not get a vaccine. It just means you cannot continue to update your consent or medical details on this portal. You will be able to do this in person when you are getting your vaccine.

Any updates to your personal details will be saved. If you saw a screen telling you that you are eligible for your vaccine, you will still get your vaccine.

The COVID-19 AstraZeneca vaccine has been approved for use in Ireland.
