Getting your child vaccinated is a decision between you and your child. If you have any questions regarding your child’s vaccination then please speak to staff at our vaccination centres, they will be available to provide you with further information. 2 doses of COVID-19 vaccine are recommended 28 days apart. A booster dose for children aged 5-11 has not been recommended by NIAC or approved by the EMA currently.
COVID-19 vaccines are strongly recommended by the NIAC for children aged 5 to 11 years who live with underlying conditions, living with a younger child with complex medical needs, living with a person who has a weak immune system (immunocompromised).

It is important that you do not go to a vaccination centre if you have Covid-19; if you have symptoms of Covid-19 or if you have been told to self isolate.
It is also important to check your eligibility online on HSE.ie before you book your appointment.
Interval between first round of COVID-19 vaccination and first booster
- If you are in the 16+ age group you need to wait three months (at least 90 days) after your first round of Covid-19 vaccination before you can get a booster. If you had Covid-19 since you were vaccinated, you should get your booster dose at least three months (at least 90 days) after your positive test result.
- If you are in the 12-15 age group you need to wait six months (at least 179 days) after receiving your second dose of Covid-19 vaccination before you can get a booster. If you had Covid-19 since you were vaccinated, you should get your booster dose at least six months (at least 179 days) after your positive test result.
Interval between first booster and second booster
If you are 65 or over, or you are aged 12 and over and have a weak immune system, you should get your second booster at least 4 months (at least 120 days) after your first booster. You can check the date of your last booster on your digital COVID-19 certificate.
If you have had COVID-19 since your first booster, wait at least 4 months after you tested positive or from when your symptoms started.
If you have a weak immune system
People aged 12 years and older who have a weak immune system have previously had one additional dose of vaccine, and were also offered a first booster dose earlier in 2022. Most people in this group are not yet due to have a second booster, and the HSE will issue SMS reminders to people in this group as their second boosters become due over the coming weeks. Clinicians will also be identifying people who have become immunocompromised recently, to be added to this group and the HSE will notify these people that they are eligible.
