The European Commission has to date authorised the use of three COVID-19 vaccines in Ireland following recommendation by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). All of the approved vaccines comply with all the requirements of quality, safety and efficacy set out in the EU pharmaceutical legislation. In addition, authorised vaccines are subject to ongoing monitoring in Ireland by the Health Product Regulatory Authority (HPRA).
It is recommended that you accept the COVID-19 vaccine when it is offered to you. It is not intended that a choice of vaccine will be provided.
Further information on COVID-19 vaccines can be found here:
