People aged 65-69 invited to register for COVID-19 Vaccine

By June Shannon Coronavirus News   |   15th Apr 2021

The HSE is asking people to register by age on specific days initially.

The HSE has today, (Thursday 15 April 2021) launched its COVID-19 vaccine online registration system and is inviting people aged 65 to 69 to register for their COVID-19 vaccine.

People in this group will be vaccinated at one of the HSE vaccination centres around the country using the AstraZeneca vaccine. Online registration commenced at 10am today, Thursday April 15th, beginning with people aged 69.

The vaccine being offered to people aged 65 to 69 is called COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca. AstraZeneca has been approved for use by both the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC), in keeping with the strictest standards of safety and quality. It is recommended for use in people aged over 60 and licensed by the EMA.

While the HSE is now inviting everyone aged 65-69 to register for their vaccine via its new online registration system, to avoid delays when registrations open, the HSE is asking people to register by age on specific days initially.
