These vaccinations will take place in vaccination centres by appointment only and will not be done in GP surgeries, pharmacies or walk in clinics.
Your child will be offered a Pfizer Covid 19 vaccine with a smaller dose than adults get. For more information and for help deciding what is right for you and your child, see below.
The HSE COMIC GUIDE below may help your child understand the vaccination process and what to expect.
CHILDREN AGED 12-15 YEARS
All children registered at DMC will be vaccinated by the HSE in vaccination centres. Booster doses are also available for this age group. They will receive either Pfizer or Moderna Vaccines.
PREGNANCY AND COVID VACCINATION
Pregnant women are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated against Covid 19. Most pregnant women who get the virus get mild to moderate symptoms. They give birth as planned and the risk of passing on COVID-19 to their baby is low. However, you are more likely to get very unwell and need treatment in intensive care than a woman who is not pregnant. The virus may also cause complications for your baby. To register for the vaccine click on the HSE portal button below.
For information on the Covid Vaccine in Pregnancy see below
