When will I be offered the vaccine?

From 19/01/2023, we will be offering COVID-19 booster vaccinations to all patients over 18 years. 

If you are age 18 to 49 - wait at least 6 months since getting your last COVID-19 vaccine or COVID-19 infection.

If you are

Wait at least 4 months after getting your last COVID-19 vaccine or COVID-19 infection before getting your booster. 

HSE information here.

If you are eligible for a vaccine please call us on 014022300 to arrange an appointment. You CAN receive both the COVID-19 vaccine AND the influenza (flu) vaccine at the same time. More information on the flu vaccine can be found here.

You may also choose to attend an HSE clinic or a participating pharmacy for vaccination.  See this page for further info on HSE clinics and participating pharmacies. Healthcare workers can avail of a booster dose via the HSE also, details here

Please see this page for information on the rollout of vaccines for children aged 5 - 17 years. Currently we are NOT vaccinating this age group. 

Even if you have been fully vaccinated, it is important to remember that you can still transmit the virus to others (but remain asymptomatic yourself), and also that vaccination is not successful in at least 5% of people.

For these reasons, if you become symptomatic, then the same advice and restrictions that were previously in place still apply.

These guidelines are being updated regularly, so please continue to check back for new information.
