    Spoke to someone today, turned 40 two weeks ago, Dublin 6W, texted today for Pfizer tomorrow in the Aviva.

    So I'd say if you're a 1981 baby or earlier in South Dublin, they'll get to you sometime this week.

    I know someone born in 82 getting done in Croke Park this week so they are working their way through the list.

    Yes, mine was 30 days after the first (text received On Tuesday - day 25).

    Citywest today was amazing. At a guess I had the vaccine less than 5 minutes after parking the car!

    How long does it usually take to get a new second dose appointment if you cancel?

    I'm day 25, Citywest and so far nothing. Interestingly my friend was done the same day as me in the same centre and got his text last week for his second shot. A different friend was done two days earlier, also in Citywest and, like me, still hasn't heard anything.

    I thought the period between doses had to to be at least 28 days.

    Your friend got that text very early.

    At least 28 days before the second vaccine. So could be 4-5 days after that even. So wouldn't worry. I am due my second one on the 7th July as that is the 28 days, doesn't mean it will happen on that day though in City West

    I should have been clearer, he got the text last week but his appointment is scheduled for his day 27, this week.

    No I understood that but I was the one being unclear. I meant he got the appointment message very early.

    But isn’t day 27 too early? I thought the earliest it can be given is after 28 days?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,158 ✭✭✭ Flying Fox


    I think the earliest possible is 21 days but in practice we're aiming for 28, or as close to that as possible.


  • Registered Users Posts: 30,380 ✭✭✭✭ Lumen


    My second Pfizer appointment is scheduled 27 days after my first.

    Different MVC too - Greystones rather than Aviva, maybe because the new Kilanerin vaccination centre is taking some load for south Wicklow and north Wexford.

    I also had a different location for my second jab. According to the agent on the HSE helpline it is random.

    I'm 27 and got a text from the GP for an appointment this week. Much earlier than expected!

    That’s it. The paperwork given with the vaccine states 3 weeks but they’ve been giving it after a month here, give or take a few days.

    Not really early or a surprise though if your GP has taken your name to get one!

    I have no idea how GPs are able to prebook and get vaccines delivered for people that are not in a cohort 4/7, over 70 etc, or in the age groups that are open for registration in mvc. There must be absolutely no control over them. These aren't last minute, end of the vial, no one else to vaccinate around them vaccine, this is clearly pre-ordered.

    I think (open to correction) that between 21 & 28 is fine. I know my father in his 70s had his second Pfizer after 26 days - the Saturday would have been 4 weeks but he got called for the Thursday, so I guess its ok.

    My friend did get the text early though, 6 days in advance. For the first dose, as it happens we were both driving to the same place, and our texts arrived as we pulled up in the car park, with two days notice.

    Is there maximum number of days or weeks in which a person needs to get the second dose?

    I had to cancel my appointment for today and the text reply said new appointment “in the coming weeks”.

    I think I've read that the guidelines from Pfizer say up to 6 weeks max. Even though the UK stretched it out further back in the springtime.

    They are just working through their patients by age. If they are finished with the current cohort why wouldn't they move on to the next one? They've been doing this since the beginning.

    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.

    No. It was clear from the start that GPs were to do over 70s and cohort 4 and 7. That's all.
    Anything extra is for €€€ right now.

    I got the Moderna vacccine.

    Well I assume they schedule me within the correct timeframe.


  • Registered Users Posts: 41 Cb12345


    Non-update update.
    Sat 26th June was 28 days after 1st vaccine.
    1972 North County Dublin Pfizer @ the Helix.
    Nothing on portal(awaiting 2nd appointment) or by text. Just rang helpline and was told no escalation available untll 28 days +5 days. Nothing can be done untill then. Nice enough person on other end of phone, could kind of tell she was fed up giving people bad news/no news.
    Back to waiting I guess.

    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.
