Meanwhile, just 4% of people say they’re unsure whether they’ll get a Covid-19 vaccine, according to a new survey.

The Ipsos/MRBI research found vaccine hesitancy has declined, with those ‘unsure’ down 14 points since January.

The survey on behalf of the Irish Pharmaceutical Healthcare Association, found those who have received or intend to get a vaccine, has risen to 89 per cent.
