COVID-19 Vaccine


The national vaccination programme has begun in Ireland, starting with front line healthcare workers and people over 65 years of age and living in Long Term Residential Care facilities. In order to limit the spread of the virus, we will all need to continue to practise the important public health measures that we’ve been following during the pandemic:

  • regular hand washing
  • cover coughs and sneezes
  • keep a 2-metre distance from other people
  • keep social contacts with other people outside our household to a minimum
  • know the symptoms of COVID-19 and stay at home and contact your GP to arrange a test if you think you have symptoms
  • wear a face covering in shops and in busy indoor workplaces, on public transport and in crowded outdoor spaces
