From today all those aged 16 years and older who are eligible to receive a booster vaccine can access this service through designated HSE vaccination centres.

Young people in this cohort must book an appointment for a booster dose and the appointment portal on HSE website has been live since New Year’s Eve.

GPs and community pharmacies will also be providing this service on an appointment basis.

It comes as the Department of Health announced the acceleration of the booster programme for people aged 16 years and older on Friday evening.

Yesterday an additional 23,281 cases of Covid-19 were reported by public health officials, while the number of people in hospital with the virus increased by 68 to 679 as of 8pm last evening.

However, the number of Covid-19 patients in ICU is unchanged at 84 over the same period.

The public PCR testing system remains under intense pressure; as of 9.30 am this morning there were no appointments available at any of the test centres nationwide.

Meanwhile, the HSE is operating a number of walk-in vaccination clinics today for people aged 30 years and older and healthcare workers who need boosters and adults who still require vaccination dose one and two.
