COVID-19 vaccine registration for people aged 30 to 34 will start next week

DUBLIN: The online registration portal for COVID-19 vaccination will open towards the end of next week for people aged 30 to 34.

The Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly, who announced the online registration, said that Ireland’s COVID-19 vaccination programme is progressing well.

Minister Donnelly said that around 351,000 vaccines were administered in the country last week and that the administration of AstraZeneca second doses for those aged 60-69 will be completed in the coming weeks.

People must have a PPS number, an Eircode, a mobile phone number, and an email address to register on the HSE website for vaccine. Those who do not have all of these documents and do not prefer to register online can call HSELive at 1850 241 850.

The Health and Safety Executive is aiming to administer any available vaccines to help protect against the Delta variant as quickly as possible. “We will continue to use all available channels to fully embrace all recommendations from NIAC,” said HSE chief executive Paul Reid.

As of June 29, more than 4.1 million doses have been administered in Ireland. More than 1.67 million people have been fully vaccinated in the country, and 2.5 million have received at least one shot.

Meanwhile, the Department of Health confirmed 512 new cases of coronavirus in Ireland, a 25% increase from the previous week and a 38% increase from two weeks prior.

Dr. Ronan Glynn, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, said that of the 512 new cases, 216 are in Dublin, 63 in Donegal, 26 in Meath, 21 in Kildare, and 20 in Limerick.

The 14-day incidence rate in Ireland is now 107 per 100,000 people. On June 28, this was 98.7 per 100,000.
