HSE Commences Roll-Out of Spring COVID-19 Booster Vaccines

HSE Commences Roll-Out of Spring COVID-19 Booster Vaccines

People aged 70 years and older

Residents of long term care facilities

All aged 5 years and older who have a weak immune system

Following the most recent NIAC (National Immunisation Advisory Committee) advice, the HSE has announced (Friday, 28th April 2023) the Spring COVID-19 booster vaccine programme for the above patient groups.

If you are eligible, you can get a COVID-19 booster from us here at Cobh Pharmacy. Those eligible must wait at least 3 months since their previous COVID-19 vaccine or since they have had a COVID-19 infection before getting the booster.

In line with NIAC guidance, the HSE aims to complete this COVID-19 booster programme by the end of May. This will allow for the period of time required for those getting their Spring COVID-19 booster to get their next booster dose in autumn, along with their flu vaccine.

Our next vaccination date is Wednesday the 17th of May 2023.
