How to book your appointment

You can book your appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine via our online booking system or by contacting your nearest participating LloydsPharmacy. Our team will guide you through the appointment booking process and provide you with all the necessary information.

We request that you bring a recognised form of photo ID e.g., your passport/driver's licence/public services card as well as your PPS number with you to your appointment. We require this as pharmacists are requested to confirm your identity and also to inform the Health Service Executive (HSE) of any vaccination administered.

The COVID-19 vaccination service is administered by trained pharmacists and is subject to vaccine availability. Remember to wear loose clothing for your appointment, so our pharmacist can roll up your sleeve to administer the vaccination easily.

**Important information before you book an appointment**

Looking after our customers and colleagues remains our top priority. Please don’t come into store for your appointment if you:

  • Have symptoms of COVID-19
  • Get a positive PCR or antigen test result for COVID-19, even if you have mild symptoms or no symptoms

Instead, please cancel your appointment.

Vaccine Types

While all previous vaccines are effective in offering protection against COVID-19, the newer adapted vaccines can offer wider protection against the newer variants of COVID-19.

The different types of COVID-19 vaccines that have been used in Ireland are:

  • mRNA - Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna
  • protein subunit - Novavax

What to expect during your appointment

Upon arrival, our pharmacist will conduct a brief consultation with you to ensure that you meet the current eligibility criteria and that it is safe for you to receive the vaccine. They will also provide you with information about the vaccine, its potential side effects, and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Once the consultation is complete, our pharmacist will administer the vaccine via injection into your upper arm. After receiving the vaccination, we will ask you to remain in the pharmacy for a short observation period, typically 15 minutes, to ensure there are no immediate side effects.

What to expect after receiving the vaccine

After receiving the vaccine, you may experience some common side effects, such as a sore arm, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, or nausea. These side effects are generally mild and dissipate within a few days.
