35-39 age group to be allowed register for Covid-19 vaccine from this weekend
Ireland's vaccine rollout continues at pace.
People aged between 35-39 will be allowed to register for a Covid-19 vaccine from this Sunday.
Similarly to when the portal was opened for previous age groups, those aged 39 will be able to register on Sunday first.
This is before 38-year-olds can apply on Monday, with registration working backwards throughout the ages in the subsequent days.
Health Minister Stephen Donnelly announced the continuation of Ireland's Covid-19 vaccine rollout on Thursday morning.
He wrote in a tweet: "Delighted to announce for some of you under 40s - the registration for a Covid-19 vaccine will open to those aged 35-39 on Sunday.
"Starting with those age 39, 38 on Monday and so on."

To register online for a vaccine, you will need a mobile phone number, an email address, your PPS number and your Eircode.
If you do not have these things, you are advised to call the Covid-19 helpline to register by phone instead.
