CHILDREN AGED 12-15 will be able to get vaccinated against Covid-19 at walk-in vaccination centres this weekend.

Children in this age bracket will be able to receive a Covid jab at one of the clinics dotted around the country if they attend the facility with a parent or guardian.

It’s the first time the centres have been opened up to this age cohort. Anyone aged 16 and older can attend one of the clinics alone.

The centres will be open to anyone who needs either their first or second dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.

The no-appointment needed facilities have proven very popular, with thousands of people receiving inoculations at the centres since they were set up less than a month ago.  

Both the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines are available from the clinics.

People attending for a second Pfizer jab must have received their first Pfizer vaccine at least 21 days beforehand.

Those attending for a second Moderna shot must have received their first Moderna vaccine at least 28 days previously.

A person is fully vaccinated around seven days after the second dose of Pfizer and around 14 days after their second dose of Moderna.

People attending clinics will need:

  • Personal Public Service (PPS) number – if you have one
  • Eircode
  • Mobile phone number
  • Email address
  • Photo ID that has your date of birth – this can be a passport, driving licence, Garda age card, school ID

Anyone who has already registered will only need photo ID that shows their date of birth.
