HSE providing Covid-19 booster vaccines to 12 to 15 year-olds from today
The HSE is providing covid 19 booster vaccines to 12 to 15 year-olds from today.
Parents and legal guardians can book online or they can bring them to walk in booster clinics this weekend.
Details of vaccine centres are available on HSE-dot-ie.
Director of Public Health at the National Immunisation Office, Dr Lucy Jessop says all children in this age group can avail of the jab:
Today, 12 to 15 year olds will now be able to get a booster dose of their COVID-19 vaccine. So the National Immunisation Advisory Committee have very recently advised that 12-15 year olds are able to get the vaccine, it’s strongly recommended for any children who have a condition that puts themselves at high risk of severe illness from Covid or they live with someone who has a high risk condition, but all children can come forward to get the booster.”
