It comes after the HSE said the vaccination of children aged between 12 and 15-years-old would begin ‘within days’ of registration opening.

Officials say they've "held back as many places as possible" this weekend so teenagers can get COVID-19 vaccines quickly.

It means people in the age group could get their first doses as soon as Saturday or Sunday.

The vaccine portal opens for 12-15-year-olds on Thursday.
