Up to 100,000 vaccines to be administered this week

With 320,000 doses administered so far, the Irish government stated that 100,000 vaccines are to be administered this week.

As 120,000 people have already been fully vaccinated, Ireland is now set to receive 1 million doses a month from April onwards.

Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly stated that we are expecting a big increase in vaccine supply by April while adding, “If supplies arrive as they’ve been ordered, we’ll be receiving over a million vaccine doses per month from April onwards.”

Those who have received their full dose are healthcare workers and those over the age of 65 in long-term care.

Vaccine supply could increase in April if the European Medicines Agency approves the one dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine. This decision is to be made by mid-March.
