    I don’t see any one completely losing their **** and it’s an entirely natural response to what to get the vaccine as soon as possible.

    And they will get it as soon as possible.

    My mother got her appointment for second dose of AZ this Saturday. 8 weeks to the day since first dose. 68, in the Helix, living in Ashbourne, Co. Meath.

    Sure is... but you have people here going mad that the government are talking about opening registration for 30 to 39 year olds, as if it's some sort of PR stunt and not active and proper preparation.

    Wonder will people like you get added to the overall total of jabs provided in the country. Considering its all employees and immediate family(?) its likely to be a few thousand people.

    I'd imagine so. Can't see why they wouldn't add my jab to the other Pfizer jabs administered and overall jab count.

    Speaking as a 42 year old from Dublin, it's hilarious to see other 41/42/43 year olds from Dublin completely losing their s**t here about not getting an appointment yet. They're going as fast as the supplies are coming in, fair play to them. It's not their fault your ma and da were riding at the same time as about 100,000 other people.

    Cheers for that beautiful image of the late 70’s / early 80’s.

    My wife and I just got notice of second jab for Pfzier. We were due to get it next Tuesday (22nd) exactly after 28 days. Strange thing is the text said Saturday, so I just assumed it was a few days early. When I checked the date more carefully, it is for Saturday week (26th), so they are running a bit behind it would appear.

    Did your wife get pfizer or Moderna


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,430 ✭✭✭ harr


    So we will be on holiday the week we are due our second jab my wife got her first the day after me so it looks like we have two different days again on same week for second jab ..
    We will be on holiday with a special needs child so not great if one of us has to do a 6 hour return journey on two different days .
    Even if we got same day it would help greatly, rang helpline to explain and they were as good as useless all she suggested was to text back NEW when we get appointment but it would be more than likely a different day on that week and not the following week .
    I asked if we could get done the weekend before but she couldn’t arrange that for us.

    Well, there is a mixture of "Are we there yet?" and "How many sleeps to Christmas?" going on!

    In fairness, and I appreciate your circumstances, its a fine balance they have to find between ensuring we get as many people jabbed as possible and doing everything to assist that, and going down the potential rabbit hole of rearranging appointments to suit everyone's wants. You'd have the world and its mother looking to rearrange their times.

    My mother got notification of her second AZ dose for this coming Sunday in Citywest. That'll be 2 days shy of 9 weeks since her first jab.

    I'm in the same boat and I really don't mind the delay. It should have been communicated in a better manner though. Supply isn't the issue though, it's the pivot to second doses that's causing it. Couple of things that have annoyed me though. First, saying the delay in 30-39 registration was due to a slow uptake in the 40-49 and that refocusing on second doses would have no impact on first dose schedule. There has been no clear data given on the first point and the second point just can't be true with circa 310k doses per week being forecast for the next couple of weeks.

    "Well, yeah, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man"

    Is there a particular time of day for the texts or do they come out as-and-when the system gets to you? Also wondering if the online portal updates ahead of the text.

    FWIW - I was Pfizered

    #1 sent 18:14 Monday for a 1440 appointment on the next Thursday

    #2 sent 17:18 Tuesday for a 1435 appointment the next Thursday

    Now I'm finally first dose vaccinated, just thinking ahead to dose no.2. For anyone vaccinated after 1 June (everyone 45 and under pretty much), dose no.2 will fall after primary schools have closed. Its an age group that will have a lot of parents of young kids so they are all going to be holidaying (domestically) in an 8 week window starting end of June. Long story short, lots and lots of second doses clashing with holidays. I hope they have thought ahead to this. If you refuse one day, no point after you the next day, etc. I wonder will they allow you by then to get second doses by appointment in convenient pharmacies? Gonna be messy if not.


    I know people who have travelled back to Dublin last week from Kerry, for their shot and returned to their hotel break afterwards. If you want the shot badly enough it won't be an issue

    Obviously they will offer other appointments if you choose not to return for the 2nd dose.

    Can't exactly organise a vaccine rollout around school holidays so that it suits the people getting it on the off chance that their in a different county, that's not the HSEs issue to be quite honest, it's a personal issue.

    There are people who say "Western Problems" on this one. Not trying to sound like an idiot, but getting your vaccine means you won't have a holiday to hospital or ICU which is a good price to pay.

    Looks like the first Pfizer jab wasn't too bad for me. 48 hours later and no pain. Noticed the arm getting really sore about four hours after the jab and that lasted until last night. Woke up this morning and it was much better. Don't know if it's related at all but for what it's worth, my persistent eczema that has been pestering me for the last year or so is suddenly gone. Probably nothing to do with it but if it did, brilliant! I hear the second dose can make you really sick though so I'm prepared to take a couple of days off after that one.

    Just out of curiosity, did all of you register on the exact day your age group was called to register? I did, took ten days and first dose done. Hopefully the second one will go as smoothly. Honestly I have no idea how people are selected (a raffle?) but hopefully everyone will get theirs soon.

    Sorry, I should perhaps have clarified. On vaccine no. 1 my wife had this very issue (we were 3 hours away) and did indeed travel back during the June bank holiday weekend, just as you suggest, even though it ruined our first weekend break in over a year. But that's just us, I suspect most people on vaccine no.2 in particular might be less enthusiastic about breaking mid holiday. I'm speculating but I suspect a lot of people in July will want to defer, and defer by at least a week. I was just highlighting that issue. As is apparent from my posts on here I'd walk across broken glass for the vaccine but talking to friends I'm seen as a vaccine zealot in that regard.

    Have you checked the portal? I know plenty of mid 50s people who have had their second vaccine in the past 10 days. In each case the initial offer was exactly 28 days later. Don’t wait for a text, check the portal.
