12 August 2021:  St. Michael's House management team would like to advise that there is no further planned HSE vaccine hubs scheduled to take place in St Michael's House.  Therefore please take note of the following HSE registration process for children 12 years and older from today 12th August 2021.

1. Register on line

Things you need to register online via HSE vaccine registration portal - Covid-19 vaccine portal

To register online you will need:

  • Mobile phone number and email address (if you are registering a child please use your own contact details)
  • PPS number – if you are registering a child, use their PPS number
  • Eircode – if you are registering a child, use their Eircode

If you do not have these things, call the COVID-19 helpline to register by telephone instead (please see details below).

Enter child’s name as it appears on your passport so your COVID certificate matches your travel documents.

At least one parent or legal guardian will need to give consent for their child to receive the vaccine, which can be done online. The HSE vaccine registration portal has been modified to allow parents to provide consent for their children to receive the shots.

When you register for your child via the portal, you will receive a text message with a link allowing you to approve parental consent.

If you do not provide consent online, or register over the phone, a parent or guardian will need to confirm consent at the vaccination appointment.
