The HSE will start vaccinating 12 to 15 year old's against covid-19 this weekend.
The registration portal for the age cohort will open on Thursday.
A HSE spokesperson has said "Once registration goes live for the 12 to 15s group, the HSE will immediately offer appointments."
Some of the appointments will be offered for this weekend.
Almost another 9,000 people had a dose 1 vaccine administered in our Walk In centres the weekend. 2/3 of these hadn't previously registered. All age groups were represented and on occasions full families attended. We're on the final leg of the vaccination programme now. @HSELive
