  • If GPs stop giving jabs it will slow down the vaccine rollout. This means it negatively impacts everyone. Get those jabs into arms by all means possible. Yes it will mean some(some =small numbers) in there 20's and 30' getting done before those in their 40's but that's a minor detail at this stage.

    Political pressure should have been put on them. We are at war with the virus.
    The world is at war with the virus. They should have been on standby to be work weekend's. Some of them didn't want to.

    Similarly, people should have also been told not to go to your GP unless it is really important. I seriously wonder when you make something free do people just go too quickly and clog up more important services.




  • Going 40,registered the 6th June, Galway , got text a day ago for apt this Tuesday. Wife’s brother in Galway goin on 40, only registered last fri and has apt today … message I’m gettin is that you better off delaying registration as U get it quicker!
    My wife is 36, Galway, registered last fri and offered it this sat coming!




  • if anybody is registered and waiting a text to advise of appointment date/time, i would recommend that you also keep an eye on website as well where you registered.

    I was waiting on a text re my 2nd appointment and only by chance checked website on Friday evening to find my appointment was for the following morning, no text received. When i mentioned it out there was told i was the 2nd person who had said it to them that morning.

    Having watched this for months, I've seen a fair bit of evidence suggesting this might be right.....

    Registered Sunday 6th, age 40, Meath. Haven't heard anything yet other than there is a backlog and to not bother chasing it (for all the good that appears to do) for another 5 days.

    Same situation as myself unfortunately only I'm a year older and in Longford

    It doesn't mean you get the vaccine sooner, just that your wait is shorter because you registered later.




  • Does anyone know when 29-34 year olds are meant to be able to register? Can't find anything online about it :(




  • Got 2nd dose Pfizer on Saturday in Aviva, morning appt.

    32 days after 1st jab.

    Was quite busy down there, but I was only 15 - 20 mins or so from registering to getting jabbed. Very efficient, fair play to them, they must be bored senseless at this stage sticking needle in arms.

    This is very quick, thought they were behind at the helix.

    Good news!




  • I am one of the luck ones offered a GP jab but don't live close at all now to said GP. I have also just gotten a text for my MVC appointment on the same day.... Waiting forever for a bus etc.

    I have travel booked in early August and looks like I'll need to be fully (2 weeks) vaccinated to go which means I would need the MVC vaccine to be at most 31 days from my first app. The GP is booked in for both shots and the second one will be on time.

    So... is it possible to get the first shot at the centre and if they are not coming through on time for the second dose, can I get it that GP? Just trying to save myself a drive if possible




  • Does anyone know when 29-34 year olds are meant to be able to register? Can't find anything online about it :(
    No, and there hasn't really been any hints about it. I'd say the earliest registration will open will be 5th July.

    Is this Portlaoise? Haven't seen anyone getting vaccine apts in Portlaoise recently. Whole load cancelled at weekend so wondering if they're now a good bit behind everywhere else

    Same date for me. Aged 38 and registered 20th June.

    Yup, it's the hotel in Portlaoise. Same place I got the first one.

    This seems the most likely, next week. But based on the progress seen in the last while, plenty of places will be basically down through to 35 year olds then.

    I'd expect it to open up next week and people in that bracket start to get appointments almost immediately.

    Yeah a large portion of second vaccine dates cancelled for this week in Portlaoise.. I know a few people who had put holidays back because they were due to get second vaccine this week. Seems to be a big push on getting all the over 50,s the second jab.




  • 26, cohort 7, vaccination tomorrow, absolutely delighted, such a relief.




  • OH (38) got her appointment for Thursday 1st July at 11:30am at the Helix.

    Trouble is she's on a site visit that day (ironically to a hospital), and can't make it (these visits are planned months in advance), we rang up and they said the best we can do is request a new appointment which could be any time in the next 3 weeks!!! We don't want to wait that long as we want to be vaccinated asap.

    My appointment is tomorrow afternoon at the Helix.
    Would it be worth A. Her coming with me tomorrow in the hope of by then some no shows will mean an excess of vaccines, and they'd give her a 1st dose? (my mothers neighbours did this, He had an appointment, she (in a similar age bracket) didn't have an appointment, but they both went together and both got done). The Girl on the helpline said they could not advise this (though of course they can't advise it).

    or B. her go on Thursday morning when the vaccination centre opens (does anyone know what time the 1st appointments are?), and get the shot before her day onsite.

    or C. Call my local GP and explain the above and see if he can do it this week?

    From reading this thread, and talking to people in the outside world, I know that option A has definitely happened for people before, when they brought their partner down to the vaccination centre.

    Option B has been discussed here too, I've seen more people saying it was possible to arrive early or at any point during the day than I have seen saying it's not possible. I've only seen one person saying they were told to come back later, in fact.

    No clue on C! But they may have already allocated the week's vaccines at your GP.

    35 here, eagerly awaiting my first dose text in South Dublin. May have a good while to wait though going by the anecdotal evidence here. :)

    I would chance a first then b if that doesn't work. My dad drove my mum to her vaccine centre and mum happened to mention he was due his jab in another Centre later that day and they told him to come in and get it there.
