One-shot Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine gets green light for 18-34 year olds
Irish people aged 18 to 34 can get the one-shot Covid-19 Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine in their local pharmacy from Monday, July 5 .
You can call up your local participating pharmacy (list at end of story) and put your name down to be called. People are being asked to register early so pharmacies can prepare and no vaccines are wasted.
Young people can also wait to register for a two shot mRNA vaccine in a vaccination centre. The portal to apply for these jabs, mainly Pfizer, will open for 30-34-year-olds in early July
Vaccination centres will also begin vaccinating younger age groups from mid-July in line with the current age-based rollout plan. They are currently vaccinating those in their 40s and late 30s.
When their age group is being processed, people can register online at www.hse.ie for a vaccination centre clinic with a Personal Public Service (PPS) number, Eircode, a mobile phone number and an email address. Alternatively, people can call HSELive on 1800 700 700 to register on the phone.
