Head Of HSE Says 55% Of Population Now Fully Vaccinated Against Covid-19

Paul Reid says 70 percent of people have also had a first dose while 275,000 vaccines have been administered so far this week

He says he expects more than 64 percent of the population to be fully vaccinated by the end of this month but that’s all dependent on vaccine supplies:

“Well we’ve always known in the HSA, it’s very hard to look forward to beyond July and August, because each week we have to rely on forecasts that we get on a weekly basis. But on the pace we’re going at the minute, you know, we should be probably well over 64% by the end of this month, people fully vaccinated. And, you know, certainly by the end of August, or certainly into September, we should be reaching that 80% figure of people fully vaccinated.”
