Dr. Colm Henry, HSE Chief Clinical Office said: “This week we are putting the most recent vaccine advice into action and inviting new groups of people for their next booster.

"I encourage everyone aged 60 and over and pregnant women, to get their next booster dose. It will give you ongoing protection from serious illness, and increase your immunity against infection from COVID-19, which we know tends to reduce after a period of months following your last vaccine," he added.

Eileen Whelan, National Lead, COVID-19 Vaccine Programme, HSE said: “Over the next few weeks, boosters will be offered to people aged 50-64, and people with long term health conditions.

"We are inviting people initially in blocks of 5 years, starting with people aged 60-64, to ensure people have a smooth experience booking appointments online and getting their vaccine," she added.

People who are more than 16 weeks pregnant are also invited to book their next booster at a HSE vaccination centre or from participating GPs.

The HSE and Children’s Health Ireland will shortly be inviting, through their parents, children aged 5-11 who are immunocompromised and now due to have their first booster, following completion of their primary COVID-19 vaccine course.
