THE HSE IS due to launch the registration system for Covid-19 vaccines for those aged 65-69 next week.

An online portal, as well as a phone line, will allow people in that cohort to register for appointments to get their jabs at a vaccination centre.

Currently the vaccination programme is focused on the first four cohorts:

  • People aged 65 and older who live in longterm care facilities
  • Frontline healthcare workers
  • The over 70s living in the community
  • People aged 16-69 who are at very high risk

More than 745,000 people have received a first dose of the vaccine and over 313,000 are now fully vaccinated. Over the next three months the health service expects to significantly increase the scale of the rollout, with the aim of giving every adult their first dose by the end of June.

As part of our Reader Q&A series, we have been breaking down the latest developments with vaccines and the rollout in Ireland, trying to answer as many of your questions as we can.

Now that we are moving into this more intensive phase of the vaccination programme, we’re keen to answer more of your questions – particularly about the rollout to those aged 65-69.
