People aged 45 to 49 invited to register for their COVID-19 vaccination

  • People aged 45-49 (including those in different groups, such as Healthcare Workers or people who are at high risk) are invited to register for the vaccine from Wednesday.
  • Register online at or by phone at 1800 700 700 for HSE vaccination appointments.
  • Vaccines will be given during May or June

The HSE invites everyone aged 45-49 to register for their COVID-19 vaccine through the HSE’s online registration system or on the phone with HSELive. 

We would like to reassure people that viewing the HSE website is entirely safe. Members of the public and staff are encouraged to register for their vaccine online. 

This invitation is for everyone in Ireland aged 45 to 49, including those who may be in another vaccine allocation group:

  • Frontline healthcare workers who haven’t got an appointment through their workplace (who haven’t registered already)
  • People with very high-risk or high-risk health conditions (who haven’t been given an appointment through their hospitals or healthcare team)
  • People who don’t have a PPSN can also be vaccinated and can register on the phone with HSElive

The quickest and easiest way to register is online with a Personal Public Service (PPS) number, Eircode, a mobile phone number and an email address. Alternatively, people can call HSELive on 1800 700 700 to register on the phone. 

Once successfully registered, we will send the appointment details by text message. People who register will be referred to a HSE vaccination centre and will be vaccinated with the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.
