Tipperary people advised HSE booster campaign for 60-69 year olds underway

People aged 60-69 in the Mid-West are being notified by text message about their booster appointments, according to the HSE.

The National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) has recommended a minimum time period of six months to have elapsed since the date of Dose 2 delivery before the booster dose is offered.

Booster dose appointments, scheduled from the information on the vaccination register, will be offered first to people with the earliest Dose 2 delivery dates.

Regardless of which COVID-19 vaccine course people had previously, they will be offered a single booster dose of mRNA vaccine.
