HSE Partner Pack 22nd December 2021

 

Thank you for your continuing support in helping to share information about COVID-19. Our highlight communications updates for you from this week are:

  • Winter illness advice for parents and guardians: COVID-19 is still spreading and lots of families are dealing with other winter illnesses too. Visit hse.ie/winter for advice on treating common illnesses, the children’s flu vaccine as well as COVID-19 vaccine information and testing advice for children.
  • COVID-19 vaccine booster:  People aged 40 and older, healthcare workers and people aged 16 and over with a high risk condition can now get a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.
  1. Go to a walk-in vaccination clinic. Visit hse.ie/covid19vaccine for clinic times and locations.
  2. You’ll get an appointment by text message from the HSE. If it doesn’t suit you can reschedule or go to a walk-in clinic.
  3. Contact a participating pharmacy. Visit hse.ie/covid19vaccine for a list of pharmacies in your area.

Some GPs are also vaccinating their patients.            

  • Online self-scheduler for COVID-19 booster vaccine: People can now book their own booster appointments online at vaccination centres in 11 counties through the HSE website here. This technology is similar to the scheduling system currently used to book PCR tests.

These initial clinics will use the Moderna (Spikevax) vaccine only, therefore this option is only available to those aged 30 and over.

The HSE will continue to operate a combination of clinics, as we move through the booster COVID-19 programme. We will still have walk-in clinics and scheduled appointment clinics, in addition to these new self-scheduled clinics. We hope this new option will facilitate people in availing of the booster dose as soon as possible, to better protect themselves and their families and communities from serious illness caused by COVID-19.

People should be aware that you can avail of the booster at a Vaccination Centre using the self–scheduler only if you are:

-aged 40 and older

-pregnant and aged 30 and over

-living in a nursing home or a long-term healthcare facility

-a healthcare worker aged 30 and over

-aged 30 or over and have an underlying condition

You need to wait at least 3 months (90 days) after your vaccine course before you can get a vaccine. If you have had COVID-19 since you were vaccinated you should get your booster dose at least 6 months after your positive result.

Please bring photo ID that shows your date of birth to your appointment or walk in clinic.

  • Who will get a COVID-19 vaccine booster next: Booster doses will soon be offered to people aged 16 to 39 - in stages with older age groups being called first. You can find more information here.
