People aged 40-49 eligible for Covid-19 booster jab from tomorrow

People aged in their 40s will be eligible to get Covid-19 booster vaccinations from tomorrow.

Those in the 40-49 age group will be able to access the booster vaccines in vaccination centres, GPs and pharmacies.

Booster vaccinations for this cohort had originally been slated to begin from 27 December, however that has now been brought forward.

The Chief Executive of the Health Service Executive, Paul Reid, has encouraged people to access a booster vaccine at the earliest opportunity.

The Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly, announced the acceleration of the vaccination campaign following an announcement by Government of new restrictions which will see bars, restaurants and indoor events close at 8pm starting on Monday.
