The single shot Johnson & Johnson will be administered by around 700 pharmacies around the country
Hundreds of pharmacies around Ireland will begin administering vaccines to 18-34-year-olds from Monday, July 5th.
The news was confirmed by Health Minister Stephen Donnelly, that the youngest cohort would have the option to receive single shot Johnson & Johnson from their pharmacist.
Minister Donnelly has called the move a “significant acceleration of our vaccine programme”.
Around 700 pharmacies around the country will be administering the vaccine to those that had contacted them and requested the vaccine.
The Health Minister told RTÉ’s Morning Ireland programme, “Next Monday, pharmacies will begin administering Janssen, to people aged 18 to 34, who have contacted their pharmacy, registered with their pharmacy and said, ‘I’d like to be vaccinated’,” he explained.
Minister Donnelly also announced that the vaccine portal for 30-34-year-olds will be opened next Friday, July 9th.
