When will I be offered the vaccine?

Update 03/01/2022

If you are over 16 years old and would like to receive your Covid-19 booster vaccine with us, please contact us on gpreception@rcsi.com or call us on 01-4022300. You need to be a registered patient of this practice. You need to wait 3 months (at least 90 days) after your first round of Covid-19 vaccination before you can get a booster. If you had Covid-19 since you were vaccinated, you should get your booster dose at least 3 months after your positive test result.

We also encourage patients who are able to attend an HSE clinic or a participating pharmacy to avail of this service, either when offered an appointment or as a walk-in, in order to get your booster dose as soon as possible.  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

We are not administering dose 1 and/or dose 2 vaccines (the primary course). See this page for details on how to register for your initial vaccination via the HSE.  

Please see this page for information on the rollout of vaccines for children aged 5 - 11 years. Currently GPs 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.
