Is North Dublin one of the slowest for vaccinations? I thought I read that somewhere a week or two ago but I could be mistaken.
I’m 27 and registered three days ago. Got a text today for an appointment for Pfizer vaccine on Monday. Really quick I’m very surprised! Does anyone know when I get to the vaccination centre in Citywest would they be able to give me the Janssen jab if I asked or would it have to be the Pfizer???
You will only receive the vaccine that was mentioned in your text (Pfizer) and cannot receive a different one. If I were you, I would go for it though....you'll be fully vaccinated within four weeks.
No you won't get J&J , it'll be Pfizer
It's moving very fast now and we are past the 45-35 age group which is our largest population cohort. It's a much bigger population relative to those younger and the system is running at full speed, so it is it will fly through the 20s.
They'll only give you what is registered for in advance of the appointment. The process is totally streamlined at the MVCs - there's no option to change things on the day and they just need to get people in and out and know exactly what stocks are needed on site.
If you want Janssen book a pharmacy appointment and cancel the MVC, but just bear in mind that it's busy at the pharmacies and you might be waiting.
Pfizer-BioNTech is a great vaccine though and you'll be done and dusted with high immunity in 28 days.
If it were me, I would go with the shot at the MVC.
I went by GP and you were in a queue and someone took the name of next in line. My first jab I was out just as my appointment time went on my watch
I have a question Group 4 and 7 were for people with underlying conditions was that just adults or everybody
There was a lot of countries that did the same as us with AZ we were the last. People were lauding the UK with there spacing out vaccines. They are trying to vaccinate everyone. Should they stop everyone getting a vaccine until everyone over x is vaccinated. That is stupid and slow
You do know why you have not received your vaccine don't you. Its because you have the virus and could give it to people. You will get it as soon as you are better. Your daughter and everyone are getting there vaccine at a quick rate surely that is great news but no its moan as someone may be before you
Adults only. At the time the groups were phased there was no EMA auth to give it to children at all for starters.
Looking that way, waiting a good while myself but I know of friends who registered only this morning and have already gotten appointments at the other Dublin Centres.
Well it has been 2 years since I have been home to Ireland. Me and my kids haven't seen my very aging parents and so forth.
Got Astra on 14th June and told it would be 12 weeks until the second dose. So did not expect to be getting home to Ireland any time soon.
But actually they have changed the recommendation over here on "mix and match" vaccines.... and on the time between vaccines. And there are so many people not taking the vaccines that the Injection Centres have gone from strict control of appointments to being "Walk in any time without appointment".
So I wandered in today on a whim and got a Biontec on the spot and my digital certificates. I was in the front door and out the back door in less than 25 minutes.
So 2 weeks from now I and my kids (both under 11) can travel to Ireland happily enough without quarantine too.
Have my first day planned. I am doing a run / jog from Clontarf to Howth and back. Then plunging into the sea in Clontarf stark naked regardless of weather and then I am going to go home and have a large bottle of Club Orange and a stack of every corn snack (Snaxx, Hot lips, Wagon Wheels, Tayto Waffles, Monster Munch, you name it if I can find it) and I am going to eat myself sick. Then after a nap I am gonna see if I can find myself a Guinness and a Beshoffs Fish and Chips.
Cohort 4: People aged 16-69 years and at very high risk of severe COVID-19 disease
Cohort 7: People aged 16-64 years with medical conditions at high risk of severe COVID-19 disease
Although this other source says Cohort 7 is 16-59: https://covid-19.geohive.ie/pages/vaccinations
Got my second vaccine today. Hope I'll be grand after it.
16 and over. Both my nephew and niece, one on both cohorts, got theirs aged 16.
Got my 2nd Pfizer 8 hours ago. Still feel good, only very very mild arm pain. Should I feel optimistic that I've escaped symptoms?
Most people say that they felt worst during the night or the next day, but all I ever experienced are what you described and nothing more.
Croke Park is going at a snail's pace. 28+ days waiting for second jab and 36 year old brother only got first jab there yesterday.
Is it not 4 weeks fir second jab except for AZ though that is xhanging
Probably wasn't clear there. I'm 28+ days waiting for the second shot and those very helpful people on the hotline told be there was nothing they could do until it got to 5 weeks and only then would they escalate it.
It was the same for me. Got my 1st jab in the Helix, then just before I was due my 2nd jab, they started moving it over to Swords. So I got hit by a delay and got my 2nd jab in Swords 5 weeks and 2 days after the 1st. In any case, that's only supposed to give me a better immune reaction I reckon.
Yeah, it's no big deal really. I booked a week away with the family for next week thinking I'd be done and dusted but will probably end up having to travel up to get it if I get called next week.
Both my daughters were recently registered. 18 yr old ( cohort 9) getting pfizer jab tomorrow, fantastic. However, her 17 yr old sister who was registered same time but in group 7 ( underlying illness) hasnt had an appointment yet. Im more concerned about her. I have spoken to hse live who simply say she will be called when theres vaccine supply available, but there obviously is, as her healthy sister is getting hers! Can anyone advise me how i might be able to get her an appointment. Gp isnt vaccinating so he registered her online but there was a bit of a mix up and shes only showing up as registered this week, though i believe most in her category have already had their vaccines. Thanks.
Sorry if this was answered before but can anyone explain for me the huge discrepancy between the % of population vaccinated from these two sources:
HSE/Paul Reid Twitter: 80% partially vaccinated, 66% fully vaccinated.
OurWorldInData site: 63% partially vaccinated, 46% fully vaccinated.
HSE/Paul Reid Twitter: https://twitter.com/paulreiddublin/status/1418070872636723200
The OurWorldInData site uses HSE website here at it's source: https://covid19ireland-geohive.hub.arcgis.com/ This is a day or two behind the numbers Paul Reid has, but it doesn't explain the ~20% difference in the numbers.
Why is this?
Paul's figure I suspect is based on percentage of adult population.
World data would then be based on percentage of full population.
59,090 done yesterday.
Paul Reid gives figures for adults. 80% of adults are partially vaccinated, 66% fully vaccinated.
Ourworldindata gives the percentages for the population as a whole and the figures are usually a few days behind. The percentage of the total population fully vaccinated is now closer to 50%.
This is getting ridiculous - who do you think is at more health risk from this virus - two people of normal health, one aged 45 and the other 65??
The plain fact of the matter is that there were people in their 40s fully vaccinated when I in my 60s caught Covid and was only partially vaccinated. Yes, that one AZ first dose vaccine likely saved me from the worst effects of the virus but I still have several ongoing symptoms.
It's not the HSEs fault that I caught Covid. But it is a demonstrable failure of their vaccination strategy that I was left only partially vaccinated till July, whilst at the same time they were double jabbing people decades younger.
The HSE played a type Russian Roulette with peoples health with this strategy. Yes it was a risk and may have worked out for the best for most but clearly some were not going to be protected as well as they could have been.
Bit 9f advice. Son due to get Pfizer this morning in Cork. Just got a text 50 mins before appointment to say it's not Pfizer but Moderna.
Is the duration between shots the same, 28 days.?
