Vaping – HSE Resources for Parents and Schools
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 8% in 2023. This is concerning as the longer-term health effects of vaping are uncertain at this time.
