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.
