Children in the Republic of Ireland aged between 12 and 15 can now register to get the Covid-19 vaccine.
They will need consent from a parent or guardian, either when registering online, or at the vaccination centre.
Those eligible can get the jab at vaccination centres and some pharmacies or GPs.
The Irish Health Service Executive (HSE) said that it will try to facilitate parents who are working with later appointment times.
About 280,000 children will be eligible for immunisation with a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
The National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) made the recommendation to extend the country’s vaccination programme in July.

The Irish health service has asked parents to study the expert advice on vaccination for this group and make a decision from there as to what is best for their child. BBC
