People in their 40s to find out when they can register for vaccine
People in their 40s will find out later this week when they can register for a Covid-19 vaccine.
The HSE is currently working through people aged in their 50s while new guidance on the usage of the Johnson and Johnson and AstraZeneca vaccines is due to be announce this week.
There were 355 new cases of covid 19 on Saturday and 447 as of midnight on Friday, after a delay in releasing figures due to the HSE cyber attack.
Irish College of General Practitioners Covid advisor, Dr. Mary Favier says as non-essential retail reopens people still need to stay safe.
“With shopping and retail opening people will be. moving around more. And it’s really important that people think – ‘what do I want to achieve here when I go into the shop? I’ve got my mask, I sanitise my hands, I keep my distance, I stay as short an amount of time as possible, and I sanitise my hands again as I leave.’
“It’s the basic advice. You can only get covid if you touch your eyes, your hands or your mouth, or if you inhale it.”
