Parents and guardians must register their children, and provide consent for the vaccination, prior to attending. This can be done either online or by telephone.

The most convenient way to register is online. All a parent or guardian needs to register a child is their own mobile phone number and email address as well as the child’s PPS number and Eircode

Anyone who is unable to register online may register by phone via the COVID-19 helpline at Freephone 1800 700 700, from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, or 9am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday.

After you register, you will be sent a text message with the vaccination appointment details three to seven days before the appointments. The HSE aims to schedule the appointment within around three weeks of registration.
