COVID Booster Programme update December 20th

The HSE have now informed us that our next delivery of vaccines will be both Moderna and Pfizer.

Moderna is to be administered to those aged 30 and over.

Pfizer is to be administered to those aged under 30.

This instruction is regardless of underline conditions or any other cohort groups.

Both vaccinations are mRNA and are affective against the current strains.

You can get these vaccines even if you got a different type vaccine in your primary course of vaccinations (AstraZeneca, Janssen, Pfizer or Moderna)

The current recommendation is that you can now receive your booster 3 months from your last vaccination.
