Tuesday, 6 July 2021

Register online or by phone at 1800 700 700 for HSE vaccination centre appointments

Appointment details will follow within three weeks

The HSE invites everyone aged 30-34 to register for their COVID-19 vaccine through the HSE’s online registration system or on the phone with HSELive.

This invitation is for everyone in Ireland aged 30-34, including those within this age range who may be in another vaccine allocation group and are not yet vaccinated.

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. People who don’t have a PPSN can also be vaccinated and can register on the phone with HSElive.

Once successfully registered, we will send people their appointment details by text message within three weeks. People who register will be referred to a HSE vaccination centre.

Vaccine options for people aged 30-34

People aged 18 to 34 may have a choice between 2 types of vaccine, both types will protect from severe illness from COVID-19.

  • the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. These mRNA vaccines are recommended for people under the age of 50. People in this age group will be offered an appointment for one of these vaccines within 3 weeks of registering.
  • the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine or AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. These viral vector vaccines have been associated with a rare side effect of unusual blood clots, which is more common in people under 50.
  • After registering online, people can opt for a Janssen or AstraZeneca vaccine, and may be vaccinated sooner than three weeks, depending on supply.

People aged 18-34 can also choose to get a Janssen vaccine by making an appointment with a participating pharmacy. Availability will depend on supplies.

Read information to help you decide which vaccine is best for you.

Online consent

People who register and are scheduled for a vaccination at a HSE Vaccination Centre will also receive an SMS with a link which allows them to give consent to their allocated vaccine online, before they attend for their vaccination.

The text message includes a link to further information on their vaccine, as well as a link to answer some medical questions and give consent. 

This step is designed to make it as simple and quick as possible for people to get their vaccine.  

Attending a vaccination centre 

Appointments have been spaced out to keep everybody safe. People are asked to arrive on time for their appointment but not more than 5 minutes before their appointment. 

People are asked not to bring anyone else to the vaccination centre, to reduce the number of people at the centre for infection control reasons. People are asked not to attend for their vaccination with children. If people have difficulty finding childcare for their appointment time, they can find options and read more at www.hse.ie/vacctr
