We encourage all parents/guardians to be aware of the dangers of vaping. Vapes or E-cigarettes are harmful to children and young people. There are direct harms caused by e-cigarettes and e-cigarette use increases the chances that children and young people will start smoking tobacco cigarettes.
What are vapes/e-cigarettes?
E-cigarettes (electronic cigarettes), are battery-powered devices that people use to heat liquid into an aerosol that can be inhaled. This process of inhaling the aerosol is called vaping. The liquid in e-cigarettes usually contains nicotine, as well as other chemicals and flavourings. E-cigarettes are sometimes referred to as vapes or electronic nicotine delivery systems.
A webinar will be hosted by Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board and the HSE looking at what parents may need to know about vaping.
