More than 50% of adults in Ireland now fully vaccinated against Covid-19

More than half of the adult population have now been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

HSE Chief executive Paul Reid announced on Twitter the landmark has been reached this morning.

Professor MacCraith who is the Chairman of the vaccination taskforce says “Today is a very significant day in the vaccine rollout.  A number of important numbers are reached.

Over 4.4 million doses will have been administered – 2.6 million dose 1’s and I suppose most significantly of all we cross the 1.9 million mark for people fully vaccinated”.
