    Whelans in Wicklow - there are a few close to Drogheda and Kilkenny doing them - some even wait listing under 35s too. I searched for it on Facebook on called a few this morning and took the first appointment offered. I asked was a Dublin address a problem in fear of cancellation and was assured it was ok.

    Tullyallen Pharmacy were advertising in on their Facebook, but there may be more around. Seems sign up was through their own website and picking the pharmacy in Slane or Tullyallen. No idea how quick an appointment will be, but the pharmacy I talked to just said to call and cancel if the HSE one came sooner.

    Thank you, have contacted both :)

    Just curious as what could be more important than getting 2nd AZ jab knowing how vulnerable we 60 to 69 age bracket are to Delta variant ?
    I tried to get mine last week with my wife but supervisor wouldn't give it as i was only 52 days from Ist jab, getting it this Friday :)

    Won't get into the reason here other than to say it was unavoidable!

    She got just rescheduled for the day before (this Saturday) and so is chuffed!

    Location: Carlow
    Age: 60-64
    Vaccine: Second Dose AZ
    Exactly 8 weeks from first dose

    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?

    Have you tried using a different browser? Or different computer/phone? It could be some odd extension installed or just an issue with a specific version of the browser. I've had issues before elsewhere where switching from firefox to chrome or vice versa worked.

    Not my update but both parents got texts for their second shot of AZ vaccine. First dose was start of May and second dose will be this weekend. Both in early 60s and over the moon.

    One of them has a parent still alive but in a nursing home and will in just over 2 weeks be able to go in properly and visit them.

    Never mind the vaccine, put that into my veins.

    Had my 2nd jab appointment in citywest today, this one went even faster than the first one, with visibly less people there (the car park supported that perception as it was nowhere near as busy as it was first time around) i was in & out in 23 minutes and that included the 15 minute observation time.

    Just sharing this here as it concerns appointments.
    The HSE said today that from July 1 it will automatically stop offering people further appointments, once they have refused three.

    Can't see any issue with that.
    No, not a bit. It's a question that comes up on this thread periodically.

    Though they only let you postpone by a day each time. I think if they allowed you to postpone an appointment by say a week each time, it'd be better imo, no need for people to worry about getting called during a holiday.

    What do you mean postpone by a day? There is no set time for a rescheduled appointment, could be a day or a week - HSE say up to 21 days.

    On Thursday last I checked the HSE portal and found a date and time for my 2nd jab (Monday 28th). I was away on holidays and had to postpone. It's now June 30th and I have no rescheduled date as yet. I'm 33 days since first jab (Pfizer), and HSE live can't escalate my case because I asked for a reschedule.
    So I've just got to sit it out and wait - she said that it could be up to 21 days which is their general advice.

    It's been a long process, I registered for the jab back in April! Had I waited for the pharmacies to get stocks, I would have been done and dusted by now.....

    Or you could re-plan your holidays after you got your first dose. Second dose of Pfizer is so predictable... you would have been done and dusted by following their schedule..

    That's brilliant. Delighted for them.

    Well, I booked the trip in April, when I hoped that I would have been fully jabbed by end June, rather than still waiting (took 4 weeks and 3 days from registration to jab 1). Had I then received the 2nd dose on the 28 day schedule, I would have been done and dusted before my 2 day break away. Instead I was given a date 31 days after jab 1. Very difficult to plan anything on a timetable like that, to be honest. Should I sit at home for weeks on end waiting for my phone to ping?

    Not as predictable as you would expect. I am 4 weeks and 4 days since my first Moderna with no sign of a text or appointment. HSE will not escalate until 4 weeks and 5 days after my first jab.

    Tried chrome on both the phone and laptop. Will try other now. I have an outlook.com email address and they are adding something to the link called SafeLink.protection. I wonder is it that.

    But I don't know how to remove it.

    They are following HSE guidelines but are keeping a list for when the age restrictions are lifted.

    Any guess when registration will open for 30-34?
    Bit late for this weekend but surely by next weekend would be my thinking.

    I recall reading something that suggested it was dependent on the uptake from the 35-39 cohort.

    Just my guess and I don't have any information, but yes I'd agree it should be by next weekend.

    They are starting to book appointments for the lower bound of the 35-39 group in parts of the country so they will need a larger pool soon.

    Keep in mind that in some places (e.g. Dublin) they are still dealing with the 40-44 group though ... so over there even if it opens for 30-34 it will still take some time before appointments are issued.

    Can you please respond to this post if you tried getting your 2nd dose Pfizer without answering the medial questions online?
    My wife just got her 2nd appt (Aviva) and I've read about the HSE portal bug that can cancel your appt after answering the questions online - even if you state you don't/didn't have any issue. (we did respond to the questions online for the 1st dose and it worked, but unsure about the same for the 2nd dose now)

    Hi I answered the medical questions on the portal for my 2nd jab without issues.

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


  • Registered Users Posts: 772 ✭✭✭ no.8


    Age: 35
    Registered: Thursday June 24th (35 year old bracket)
    Text received: Monday June 28th
    Appointment: Wednesday June 30th
    MVC: Pairc Ui Chaoimh
    Vaccine: Pfizer-BioNtech
    Dose: 1

    Registered on the intended date for my age (I wasn't too pushed to get in there earlier). Interestingly enough I was booked in a day before OH (36) who registered on the first day for the 35-39 bracket (who is under pressure to get the vaccine).

    Excellent experience, fairly quiet at 10:00. Straight in and jabbed within a few mins of entering the stadium. Fluid operation. Noticeably busier upon leaving though this may ebb and flow (I didn't hang around to find out).

    Negatives: Just 1. No on-pitch entertainment / half-time show :/

    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.
