Who can get an autumn booster?
You will be offered a booster dose if you are:
- age 50 or older
- age 5 or older with a weak immune system
- age 5 to 49 with a condition that puts you at high risk of serious illness from COVID-19
- a healthcare worker
If you're age 18 to 49 and not in one of the groups above, you can still request a vaccine. Talk to your GP or pharmacist about your reasons for wanting a booster.
Ask the pharmacist about getting the COVID-19 booster and flu vaccine at the same time.
You may experience an increase in side effects after getting both vaccines together. These will be mild and should not last long.
Side effects may include:
- pain in your arm (or arms) where you had the vaccines
- fatigue (feeling tired)
- muscle aches and pain
If you feel uncomfortable, take paracetamol or ibuprofen following the instructions on the box or leaflet.
Our aim is to have you in and out as quickly as possible, usually about 20 mins. The vaccine will be delivered by injection into your upper arm in the privacy of our vaccination suite.
As is the case with all medicines, vaccines may cause side effects. Not everyone gets side effects, however for those that do, most of these side effects are mild to moderate and short-term.
Comprehensive HSE information on the Pfizer / BioNTech Covid-19 booster vaccine dose is available here
A guide of what to expect after your vaccine is available here.
