The HSE has provided dedicated information for parents on which outlines the benefits and risks of the vaccine.

Parents can register their child for a Covid-19 vaccination online and they will receive a text message with details of their child’s appointment.

Berni O’Sullivan, Lead Coordinator for North Main Street Vaccination Centre says:

‘We have looked at ways to make the centre more child friendly and improve a child’s overall experience. Some of our staff have dressed up in character costumes such as an elephant and a rabbit, with a focus to alleviate any stresses a child may have coming into the centre for their vaccination. We accommodate all children but specifically try to cater to those with sensory issues by bringing them to the centre at earlier times’
