Vaccine registration is open for people aged 25-29

Register online to get a COVID-19 vaccine :

Online registration for everyone aged 25-29 opened on Friday 16th July. People in this age group can all register from this date, and will be offered a vaccine appointment at a HSE vaccination centre within 3 weeks of registering. People aged 18-24 will be invited to register online next.

Vaccine options for people in this age group

People aged 18 to 34 may have a choice between 2 types of vaccine, both types will protect from severe illness from COVID-19.

·         the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. These mRNA vaccines are the recommended and preferred option for people under the age of 50.

People aged 25-29 will be offered an appointment for one of these vaccines within 3 weeks of registering online.

·         the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine or AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. These viral vector vaccines have been associated with a rare side effect of unusual blood clots, which is more common in people under 50.

When registering online, people can indicate that they are happy to opt for a viral vector vaccine. This may mean they can be vaccinated sooner, all depending on vaccine supplies. The appointment text will let people know which vaccine is being offered.


People aged 18-34 can also choose to get a Janssen vaccine at a participating pharmacy, depending on supplies. If people in this age group are already registered with a pharmacy for a Janssen vaccine, they can now register on for an mRNA vaccine.
