Online booking portal for COVID-19 vaccination will be available next week for those aged 50 to 59

DUBLIN: Taoiseach Micheál Martin has announced that the online vaccine booking portal for people between the ages of 50 and 59 in Ireland will open next week. The online booking system is currently only available to people 60 years of age and older.

Taoiseach also paid tribute to everyone who had already used the portal. “You have responded extremely positively to the launch of the online portal, and I’m pleased to confirm that over the course of next week, the portal will open for registration to all those aged 50-59,” he said.

Those registering for vaccines on the HSE website will need their PPS number, Eircode, mobile phone number, and email address. Those that don’t have all of these, or who are having difficulty registering online, can contact HSELive at 1850 241 850 for assistance with the registration process.

People are being asked to register by age on specific days to avoid delays in vaccination. The HSE said the next opening will be announced next week.

HSE CEO Paul Reid had earlier stated that the vaccine was being rolled out under a revised vaccination plan in response to recent NAAC guidelines and government decisions. The revised plan (version 27) will be finalised over the weekend and early next week, he said. “It will be a plan that accommodates the various adjustments that we have to make and continues to increase our administration of vaccines based on available supplies,” he added.

During his speech to the nation yesterday, Taoiseach said that more than 1.5 million doses of the vaccine had been administered in Ireland as of Thursday. “That means close to 30% of everyone over 16 has received at least one dose of the vaccine,” he said.
