    Local pharmacy is starting on over 35s from this Sunday so I'll see which one happens first I guess.

    I thought the pharmacies were only doing over 50s? Did they annouce a change to that then? Do you know if they are offering Pfizer or J&J or one of the other vaccines?

    I rang the HSE line - registered 2nd June, still no appointment. It is being "escalated" and "you will get an appointment very soon" which I took as code to be just wait and you will eventually get one :cool:

    I had to phone 6 days in a row, starting 4 days before my 4 weeks were up. Got told on Sunday I was escalated and now have a date for July 1st. Infuriating having to fight to get a vaccine when my appointment was clearly missed by the HSE's automated system, 38 year olds in my area are getting vaccinated before me (40). Keep calling HSE Live and complain, seems to be the only thing that works

    Pharmacies doing both Pfizer for over 35 starting Sunday and j&j for the over 50,s which they are getting very little uptake.

    They did announce a change to that. They will likely have J&J.

    Does anyone know what's happen to the Galway race course schedule when the "Galway Races Summer Festival (26th July – 1st August 2021)" gets under way.


    I see thy are hoping to allow 5K people to attend per day. Can they accommodate this plus continue the vaccines? Most race days start at 14:30.Can they work up to this time for vaccines?

    Are they planning to pause this location for first doses, but many people will be due there second does at this time, will they be rescheduled to another centre?

    Haven't heard but I'd be surprised if they paused it, getting people jabbed is more important than a few races.

    Has anyone else had a text asking you to log into the portal before your appointment to give consent? I just got one now, but I'm afraid to do it in case it messes something up for me (I know some people on here had their appointments cancelled).

    I've just got that text too. Was following boards advice and not completing (in case of cancellation). But now I'm afraid my appt will be cancelled if I don't complete. Meh

    This particular one is offering Pfizer. I just saw a photo that someone posted on Twitter of a sign in a pharmacy window in Dooradoyle saying they're offering Pfizer to over 30s ftom Tuesday 6th! It's worth looking up your local pharmacy's Facebook page :)

    I consented online and had no problem at all . But it was a bit pointless as they asked the same questions again in the MVC

An add on is the term they used. Had to quote persons name who rang me at door.I am 50. First jab 1st June quite late for that age group. Can't check online either to see if I have appointment. So have to ring everyday now as I don't trust them to text me for 2nd Pfizer jab.

    Yeah it's hard to know what to do. I think I'll leave it for now, I doubt they'd cancel.

    My wife checked the portal earlier and it had it her appointment in for this Sunday, she started filling in the online questionnaire and it cancelled her appointment.

    She then rang the helpline and within 10 minutes she got her appointment text. Unfortunately she got a cancellation text about 30 minutes ago.

    She's annoyed.... Very annoyed....

    Thanks, I'm definitely going to leave it alone now.

    That is infuriating for your wife!

    We left filling in any info on line on our first jab as I had been warned about the possibility of the appointment being cancelled, they ask all the same on the day anyway. Surely they have had enough time now to fix this known bug .

    Keep original text and delete the second and say she never got a cancellation and tell her to go ahead to first appointment she got .

    thanks i need a password though and when i go to reset it it just sends me in circles lol :cool:

    I'm getting similar. Spoke to HSE contact number and they told me it was a Google issue and to contact them!

    I'm a bit worried as I know people getting appointments but no texts so I would like to check,

    Anyone else not able to change their password?

    Does anyone know what’s going to happen to the MVC at Galway racecourse for the week of the races............it serves a large area . Would be a serious problem if it’s decommissioned for the whole week

    Delighted for you

    In fact I know no 39s done yet.


  • Registered Users Posts: 36,502 ✭✭✭✭ Itssoeasy


    I know this is a very common after affect of getting the jab but since I got it I felt fine, but my arm is really sore now. It’s like I’ve gotten a slap of a Hurley in my arm.

    My mother is scheduled for the Helix this Sunday.

    2nd Dose AstraZeneca
    Age 64
    North Dublin

    Good to see the infamous 60 year olds getting their vaccines sorted at long last.

    I was surprised to get the text this week to be honest but speaking to family and friends in the area this evening I’m not alone, plenty of 36 to 39 year olds have received texts this week although not all to the local vaccine centre. Hopefully it’s a good sign for Meath after all the delays.

    37 and got my first dose of Pfizer today in Ballybrit, Galway. Wife is 36 and she has an appointment for Sunday for first dose of Moderna.
