Almost 70% of our population is now fully vaccinated, says CMO

The vaccination programme has received high uptake to date

The Health Protection Surveillance Centre last evening confirmed that they had been notified of 1,120 confirmed cases of Covid-19. 

142 Covid-19 patients are hospitalised, of which 27 are in ICU.

Dr. Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said: “Almost 70% of our population is now fully vaccinated and today the vaccination programme has been extended to 12-15 year olds who will also be able to register for an mRNA vaccine.

 

“Following advice from the National Immunisation Advisory Committee, which has been approved by Government, I encourage parents and guardians of those aged 12-15 years of age to register them for a vaccination as soon as the opportunity arises.

 

“The vaccination programme has received high uptake to date. I strongly urge anyone eligible to register for a vaccine to do so as soon as possible.”
