CHILDREN AGED 5 TO 11 YEARS
Since 3/1/21 parents of 5-11 year olds can register their child for the COVID 19 Vaccine. (See below for aged 12-15 years). Getting a Covid 19 Vaccine should protect your child from getting seriously ill with Covid 19.
These vaccinations 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.
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.
