It seems some people here are either unaware, or are practising wilful ignorance, that some jobs already demand proof of vaccination against certain diseases before you will be employed in such roles.

In Dublin, when the 45-49 age group were registering, my experience was that those in the higher age range were waiting 12-14 days before they got the text, those in the lower end of that age range up to a week longer.

2nd Jab yesterday.

Starting to think that the UK are going to screw up the online Passport thing whereas the EU one seems good to go from July?

Just got the text from the HSE that I'm to go to Croker on Monday to get vaccinated and I'm being given the the Pfizer one.

I registered for it on the HSE website 2 weeks ago.

Is this a new stance by WHO, Gmac?   I found this on WHO's website, but I don't know if it's a change of policy.:

https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/covid-19-vaccines/advice

 "There is not yet enough evidence on the use of vaccines against COVID-19 in children to make recommendations for children to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults."

Taking the Astrazeneca didn't fare well for this poor lady and there are plenty like her:
