Vaccine registration portal will be open to 25-29 year olds from today

DUBLIN: The online portal for COVID-19 vaccine registration will open today (Friday, July 16) for people aged 25 to 29.

Those who register via the HSE portal will be given a Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccine. These people can also choose Johnson & Johnson, as pharmacies across the country are administering the one-dose Janssen vaccine for the 18-34 age cohort.

Those aged 30 to 69 can also continue to register for a vaccination.

People registering for vaccines on the HSE website will require their PPS number, Eircode, mobile phone number, and email address. 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 Service Executive also plans to launch an opt-in system that will allow people aged 18 to 34 to register on its vaccine portal in order to receive an AstraZeneca or J&J vaccine in a vaccination centre.

According to the latest vaccination figures, over 4.8 million doses have been administered in Ireland. As of Tuesday, July 13, over 2.6 million people in the country have received at least one dose, with over 2.1 million receiving a second dose.
