Covid-19 National Booster Vaccination Programme – Booster 2

Further to recommendations from NIAC the HSE is progressing the implementation of a Second Covid Booster Vaccination Programme for the following cohorts of patients:

  1. those over the age of 65, and
  2. those aged 12 years and older with immunocompromise associated with a weak immune system can also now get their Second Booster when it is due for them

Time Interval between Booster 1 and 2

The minimum interval period is four months after the first booster.

Where a patient has had Covid, the second booster vaccine is deferred for a minimum interval of four months following infection onset. This includes confirmation through a PCR test or antigen test (including those self-reported by patients).
