Appointments for the COVID-19 seasonal booster vaccines are to book as they become available for those eligible under HSE guidelines.

Anyone who hasn’t received their primary vaccination course or a FIRST booster should contact us before booking.

Who should get a booster

How long must I wait since my last vaccine or if I have had Covid

The advice is to get your booster dose 6 months after your positive test result or last booster although you can get it after 3 months in exceptional circumstances or if you are coming in for the flu vaccine as  well . If you are under 50 then wait 9 months (unless you are immuno-compromised where the wait is 6 months) again with a minimum interval of 3 months

 Which vaccine you will be offered

The vaccine you will be offered will be the Pfizer Omicron variant XBB.1.5. This is the most recent approved as of Sept 23.

Why some people need a booster dose

COVID-19 infection can cause severe disease. All COVID-19 vaccines licenced in Ireland are effective at protecting you against hospitalisation and severe illness from COVID-19. But infections in people who are fully vaccinated can happen, especially in older people.

This may be because when you are older your immune system does not respond as strongly to vaccination. Protection from vaccination may weaken over time
