Covid-19 Updates


Public Health Measures

Extended Level 5 restrictions are in place until 5 March. You can see the measures in place here.

We are experiencing an unprecedented surge in Covid-19 cases in Ireland.

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme

Since 29 December, the HSE has been giving the vaccine to people in the highest priority groups – frontline healthcare workers, and people living in long-term care facilities who are aged 65 or over.

The Covid-19 vaccine will offer you protection from Covid-19. Getting a Covid-19 vaccine should also protect you from the serious complications of Covid-19. The aim in offering the vaccine to the population is to protect people and reduce the illness and deaths caused by this virus.

We encourage everyone to read about the Covid-19 vaccine and to get their information from a factual, trusted source – gov. ie is a good place to start, and you can find Covid-19 information materials on the HSE website.

Public Health Information


As always, for the most up to date information and advice on Coronavirus, please go to the gov  ie and HPSC website. Clinical and professional guidance relating to COVID-19 is available on the HPSC website where you’ll find up to date guidance for healthcare settings and non-clinical settings.


Please also check the Healthy Ireland site here with further resources and information on the Keep Well campaign.
