If you're aged 50-59, you will be offered a COVID-19 vaccine next

Here is everything you need for the registration process. Registration is still open to those aged 60-69.

To get your vaccine at a HSE vaccination centre, you will need to register in advance. You can register for your COVID-19 vaccine either on, or on the phone.

This registration is for everyone aged 50-59, including people with very high-risk or high-risk health conditions.

Vaccinations will start from 2 weeks after you register.

The quickest and easiest way to register is online. You will need your Personal Public Service (PPS) number, your Eircode, a mobile phone number and an email address to register online.

If you don’t have all of these, or you don’t want to register online, you can call HSELive on 1850 24 1850 to register on the phone.

Once you are registered, we will send your appointment by text message 3-7 days before you are due to get your vaccine. Your vaccine will be ready for you at your vaccination centre.

When to register

Registration for those aged 57-69 is already open. For those aged 50-56, please register on on the following dates in May:

People are asked to register on the days above to make the process as easy as possible and to avoid delays.

If you’re aged 57-69 and you haven’t registered yet, please register for your COVID-19 vaccine online or on the phone.

If you’re in a younger age group, you’ll be invited to register for your vaccine when it’s your turn.
