From today, Wednesday 7 July, people aged between 30 and 34 can register for their COVID-19 vaccine online.
To avoid delays when we open registration we are asking people to register on different days depending on their age. Registration dates and age groups:
- Wednesday 7 July, people aged 34 should register
- Thursday 8 July, people aged 33 should register
- Friday 9 July, people aged 32 should register
- Saturday 10 July, people aged 31 should register
- Sunday 11 July, people aged 30 should register
If you are a staff member in this age group and you haven't already registered for your vaccine then you too can register this week.
Online registration - information for patients and service users
People in this age group who are registering online will need their Personal Public Service Number (PPSN), their Eircode, an email address or a mobile number.
A friend or a family member can help if someone is finding it difficult to go online and register or they can ring HSELive for support on 1800 700 700 from 8am -8pm, 7 days.
Once registered the person will get an appointment by text message within 3 weeks Vaccinations will be at a HSE vaccination centre.
18 to 34 age groups
People aged between 18 to 34 have a choice between 2 types of vaccine:
- the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. These are called mRNA vaccines. They are recommended for people under the age of 50.
- the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine or AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. These are called viral vector vaccines.
- After registering online, people can opt for a Janssen or AstraZeneca vaccine, and may be vaccinated sooner than three weeks, depending on supply.
People aged 18-34 can also choose to get a Janssen vaccine by making an appointment with a participating pharmacy. Availability will depend on supplies.
