90% of adults now fully vaccinated

90% of adults are now fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

By the end of today, over 7 million doses will have been administered under Ireland’s vaccination programme.

Yesterday, 1,292 new cases of Covid-19 were confirmed – a fall of 253 on the previous day.

331 patients are in hospital with the virus – 54 of whom are being treated in intensive care.

Christine Loscher, Professor of Immunology at DCU, says presenting for a second vaccine dose is vital.

“The second doses are really particularly important.

“For those hesitant about a second dose of Astra Zeneca there is now a second dose of Pfizer available.

“For people over a certain age we’re starting to see boosters, and we would encourage them to engage with the vaccination programme and maximise the effect of our vaccine wall.”
