COVID-19 Second Booster

COVID-19 second boosters are now being rolled out for over 65’s & those aged 12 or over with a weak immune system


The GP’s have been asked to vaccinate those over 65 years old and those aged 12 or older with a weak immune system

Please note that there are specific dates where these vaccines will be administered. If you cannot attend the surgery on the date given, you may have to attend a HSE vaccination centre. We will try our utmost to avoid this, but it may be a possibility.

You can get your second booster at least 4 months (at least 120 days) after your first booster.

If you have had COVID-19 since your first booster, wait at least 4 months after you tested positive or from when your symptoms started.


65 or older – vaccine doses

If you are 65 or older, your second booster should be your fourth vaccine dose.
