Adults of all ages living in Ireland can register for their COVID-19 vaccine from today.
The HSE is inviting all people aged 18-24 to register for a vaccine on vaccine.hse.ie.
Those within this age range who may be in another vaccine allocation group and are not yet vaccinated can also register today.
Once successfully registered, the HSE will send people their appointment details by text message. Appointments will be located at a HSE vaccination centre.
Everyone registering online will be offered a Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine or the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
When registering, people aged 18-34 can also choose to opt for a viral vector vaccine, the AstraZeneca vaccine, as this may become available earlier than an mRNA vaccine. People opting in may be offered an earlier appointment because a supply of the AstraZeneca vaccine may be available before the mRNA vaccine.
Your appointment text will let you know which vaccine is being offered.
People aged 18-34 can also choose to get a Janssen vaccine at a participating pharmacy, depending on supplies. The Janssen vaccine is a viral vector vaccine. People aged 18-34 who are already registered with a pharmacy and waiting for an appointment should also register on HSE.ie now. Depending on vaccine supplies over the coming weeks, you may be offered an appointment for either an AstraZeneca vaccine, or the recommended mRNA vaccines, earlier than at the pharmacy.
