Ireland Now Accepting Mixed Dose Vaccines

Tourism Ireland is welcoming the announcement by the Irish government that mixed vaccines are now accepted as full vaccination.

As a result of the decision, passengers are considered fully vaccinated if they have been vaccinated with any combination of a vaccine approved for use in Ireland, as defined in the national regulations published Nov. 9, 2021.

For example, if a traveller’s first dose was Astra-Zeneca, and their second dose was Pfizer, they are fully vaccinated 7 days after the Pfizer dose.

This includes vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency and some from the WHO Emergency Use Listing. See the list below:

  • Spikevax (previously Moderna) plus 14 days
  • Vaxzevria (previously AstraZeneca)/Covishield plus 15 days
  • Comirnaty plus 7 days
  • Janssen plus 14 days
  • (Vero Cell) Inactivated/CoronaVac plus 14 days
  • Inactivated COVID-19 (VERO CELL)/SinoPharm / BIBP plus 14 days

It should be noted that travellers are not considered fully vaccinated until the below period has passed based on your second vaccine:

  • 15 days after the second AstraZeneca dose or second Covishield dose
  • 7 days after the second Pfizer-BioNtech dose
  • 14 days after the second Moderna dose
  • 14 days after the single Janssen dose
  • 14 days after the second Sinopharm dose (also called Vero Cell Inactivated)
