You are invited to register for our Vaping/E-cigarettes : Get the Facts webinar, taking place on November 22nd 11am-12.30 pm (Dublin Time)

The number of people who vape has increased significantly in Ireland in recent years. Data focused on 16 year olds, found 1-in-5 were using E-cigarettes in 2019 which is double what it was in 2015. More up-to-date Irish data is due to be published early next year. Based on these recent trends, we expect this will confirm a further increase in E-cigarette use among children and young people in Ireland. Adults’ usage has increased from just 3% in 2016 to 6% in 2022.

This is concerning as the longer-term health effects of vaping are uncertain at this time. During this webinar you will hear from experts about this important and emerging issue.
