Health Minister Stephen Donnelly says anyone aged 69 who is looking to register for a vaccine today must follow 39 steps on the website.

Meanwhile, more than 400 people will receive COVID-19 jabs at a vaccine centre on Clare’s border with Limerick today.

The UL Hospitals Group says those receiving the jab at the Radisson Blu Hotel are in group 4 and have already been contacted by text message.

Hundreds more patients are waiting for new appointment dates after having had their scheduled jabs deferred due to the shelving of the AstraZeneca vaccine for anyone under 60 years of age.

Rollout plans are being reconfigured, with Clare’s designated vaccine centre at Treacy’s West County Hotel in Ennis still on course to administer its first innoculations on April 26th.

Anyone who was due to attend an AstraZeneca clinic this week, who has not been contacted directly in advance, is still advised not to attend.
