General practice are finished vaccinating Cohort 4&7 patients aged 18-59. We have completed the patients we have identified for these categories.
I refused the vaccine previously, but now I wish to get it. What do I do?
I’m not sure if I should I get the vaccine based on my medical conditions, when offered?
We have not been issued with information yet on whether certain conditions should be excluded or when the vaccine is contraindicated. In most cases it will be your personal choice as to whether you get it or not (if eligible). For more information about the vaccine see: https://www2.hse.ie/covid-19-vaccine/
I am pregnant, should I get the vaccine?
Pregnant women are being vaccinated through their maternity hospital. Please contact them if you have any queries. You can refer to the following documents and links should you have any questions in relation to the vaccine in pregnancy :
Is there a charge for the vaccine?
No. The vaccine will be free to patients, we will need your PPS number to give it.
Where can people in the younger cohort (12 - 15 years old) get the vaccine?
If someone in this age cohort wishes to get the vaccine, they must contact a pharmacy and arrange and appointment. They must be accompanied to the appointment by a parent/guardian.

PLEASE NOTE: 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)
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 the HSE website for new information.
