First nurse to be vaccinated in Laois in early 2021 at Portlaoise hospital
The Minister for Health has confirmed that registration for a Covid-19 mRNA vaccine for 30 to 34-year-olds has been brought forward.
The age cohort can already phone their local pharmacy to get a one-shot Johnson & Johnson jab when supply becomes available but they can also register for a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine from Wednesday, July 7. This has been moved forward from July 9.
34-year-olds can sign up through the HSE vaccine portal on Wednesday, Jully 7, with 33-year-olds on Thursday and so on until 30-year-olds signing up from Sunday.
The minister has also said that appointments for this age group will be sent out in "a matter of days."
