Vaccine registration portal for 30-34 year olds will open on Wednesday

DUBLIN: The online portal for COVID-19 vaccine registration will open tomorrow for people aged 30 to 34. Registration will begin on Wednesday, July 7, with those aged 34, followed by those aged 33 on Thursday, and so on.

The portal was expected to open for this group on Friday, but it has now been moved up two days. People in this age group will be able to register for an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine.

However, they can also opt-in for an earlier dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, as the administration began yesterday in pharmacies across the country for those aged 18 to 34.

Minister Donnelly also said that vaccination will begin quickly following registration, with the first appointments for this group beginning next week.

50% of adults now fully vaccinated

The HSE has confirmed that more than half of the adult population in Ireland, or around 1.9 million people, is now fully vaccinated.

HSE CEO Paul Reid said that more than 4.4 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered to date, with 50% adults fully vaccinated and 67% receiving their first dose.

Professor Brian MacCraith, chair of the Vaccination Taskforce, said: “Today is a very significant day in the vaccine rollout.

“Most significantly of all, we’ve now crossed the 1.9 mark for people, which signifies a massive milestone in the rollout programme.”
