    I hope they open it up soon for us 30-34 year old. I really want to get in before they force AZ & JJ on to us.

    I did have a blood test done to see if there was any blot clot concerns but because of the HSE hack, I won't get these results and I'm not comfortable getting AZ or J&J without the reinsurance of a clear result.

    Don't worry, AZ and J&J will be opt-in. Eamon Ryan said so the other night and George Lee reported the same thing on the news yesterday. He also said we can expect some information today from the HSE about how they're going to implement it. My guess is that they'll send AZ and J&J to the pharmacies.

    Had my 2nd vaccine a month ago

    Then I got a third appointment

    Rang told them Id had 2

    Then I got a 4th appointment

    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—

       Because I was not a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—

       Because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—

       Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    Does anyone know what age group they’re doing at Punchestown at the moment?

    Had my second dose yesterday and there was a lot of people in my age group, 1971, having their second doses. Not sure how old the people getting first dose were. Younger than me anyway!

    You'll soon be able to wander around town and immunise people just by touching them.

    I have an appointment for my second dose of Moderna on Saturday morning. I got the text last night.

    A few minutes ago I got another text with a link to medical questions they need answered before I get the jab.

    I had to cancel an appointment for the second jab rallied this week. I did it the morning of the appointment.

    How come I didn’t get asked these questions then?

    These texts seem to be a new thing, I got one as well. I'm ignoring it as some people who answered the questions online had their appointments cancelled due to a bug in the system.

    Anyone in the 35-39 bracket in North Dublin got an appointment yet?

    Seems this group are getting jabs in the south county but I haven't heard anyone here get an appointment.

    Ah flip.

    I followed the link straight away and answers the questions. I’m usually not so diligent- hope I don’t regret it as Saturday morning is ideal because I can get a lift.

    Has anyone in age 36-39 age bracket in North Westmeath area been called yet for vaccine, registered on 18 June and still awaiting, just wondering if any been called to Mullingar or Athlone MVC yet. Seems like other counties are getting through age bracket quicker.

    My husband (37) is getting his vaccination today and I'm aware of another in the same age group who got his yesterday. Plenty of others in North Dublin too going by this thread for Helix appointments. Seems to be ahead of Dublin west.

    Had my first dose in the Aviva yesterday (40). Very slick, was in and out in less than 25 minutes. Was lovely to see so many people so happy to be getting their turn, and the good weather was an added bonus. Roll on jab #2!

    When I got my initial text, I logged into the portal and answered the medical questions online. That was on Monday. My appointment is tomorrow.

    Yesterday, I received the text confirmation asking me to complete the medical questions. Given what you said, I was nervous that my appointment was cancelled.

    Just checked, and it is still there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,164 ✭✭✭ Flying Fox


    I'm not saying that answering the questions will cancel an appointment, just that it has happened to some people on here.

    It seems to happen instantly when the person is in the middle of answering the questions, so if you got through it without anything weird happening then you're fine.

    Get ringing your local pharmacies.

    I spent about 30 mins ringing around several in my town and ones close to me and got slotted in this morning (cancellation) at 11:30 and all done and got herself in for Tuesday - both Pfizer.

    From ringing probably more than 30 pharmacies:
    - many are just doing J&J
    - a good few are doing Pfizer and are either i) waiting for more vaccines to arrive from HSE and ii) are in the middle of doing people and might or might not have waiting lists / cancellations for this week
    - some aren't doing any but will tell you who in your town is

    Some pharmacies were also saying they are waiting for go ahead which they expect on Monday to do all ages and seemingly more Pfizer are on the way to them too if that's what people prefer.

    I'm 35 by the way and based in Dundalk where by the sounds of it out local MVC is still doing round 2 of AZ and so would likely have been waiting a while even to be sent to Navan etc (which I would have had no issue with). What prompted me to ring around this morning was anecdotal stories of people in their 20's just chancing it with pharmacies around here and getting jabbed.

    I tried to register online last week and my PPS number was used to vaccinate someone else so couldn't register online.

    I had to register by phone. I got my appointment for this Saturday and I got the text today about giving consent and I had issues again with my PPS number being used already to vaccinate someone else.

    The HSE live person I spoke to said the online form of giving consent is only to speed to the vaccination process on the day at the vaccination centre and not doing it online wont effect my appointment and you can just do it at the vaccination centre.

    Seriously what's going on with City West....I know it's a well run operation but we are lagging way behind the rest of the country.

    Age: 37
    Registered: 20th
    Still waiting and checked the online portal to confirm.

    All this talk to Delta has me rightly spooked too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,384 ✭✭✭✭ Stark


    Yeah 39 and still waiting here. I'd wish they'd just send us to a different centre if there's a backlog in Citywest. They're vaccinating 40 year olds on Sunday.

    I didn’t think to check by logging in. My appointment is still scheduled at the moment so I will keep an eye on it for changes.

    It'd be great to know if ppl who ignored the text / didn't answer the questions online still got their 2nd jab at their MVC.
