You just need two things to register and it's hoped people will get vaccines as aresult of the portal from later this month

An online portal will open this morning for people in their 60s to register for their Covid 19 vaccine. It'll initially be available to those aged 69, before opening to those aged 65-68 over the coming days.

A PPS number and Eircode is needed to register. Those in their 60s are mainly going to be offered the AstraZeneca vaccine following concerns about rare blood clots in younger people.

Dr Donal O’Connor from the Health Products Regulatory Authority is reassuring people, the vaccine is safe.
