Vaccine registration portal for 35-39 year olds will be open from Sunday

DUBLIN: Minister for Health has confirmed that the COVID-19 vaccine registration portal will be open to people between the ages of 35 and 39 from Sunday.

Registration will begin with those aged 39 on Sunday, followed by those aged 38 on Monday, and so on. However, people over the age of 40 can register for the vaccine at any time. The HSE estimates that 710,000 people fall into this age group.

Stephen Donnelly announced on twitter that he was “delighted to announce for some of you under 40s – the registration for a COVID-19 vaccine will open to those aged 35-39 on Sunday. Starting with those age 39, 38 on Monday and so on.”

Meanwhile, HSE CEO Paul Reid said that Ireland will administer a record number of COVID-19 vaccines – between 310,000 and 330,000 – this week.

The HSE’s decision to reduce the interval between AstraZeneca doses from 12 weeks to eight weeks was taken in an effort to lessen the effect of the Delta variant, Mr. Reid said. A total of 450,000 people are awaiting their second dose, which HSE expects to administer by July. 

Fully vaccinated people can travel abroad without a PCR test from next month

The Department of Health has confirmed that those who have been fully vaccinated and those who have recovered after contracting COVID-19 in the last 9 months will be able to travel abroad from July 19 without a PCR test.
