This is also a good option for people aged 18-34 and 50 or over .

What about young people 17 years old and younger ?

At the moment  Pfizer / Biontech supply the  only vaccine that is licensed for “very high risk”  young people aged 16/17 years old.

Those 15 years old and younger are not eligible for vaccination as no vaccine has been licensed for this age group at this time in Ireland .
