According to HSE chief Paul Reid, approximately 2.9 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine have been administered in Ireland so far which amounts to two million first vaccine doses, approximately 53% of the population.
As of yesterday evening, approximately 900,000 second doses have also been administered which amounts to approximately 25% of the adult population.
Reid also stated that a total of 300,00 doses were administered last week. The vaccination data, in terms of reporting, has been badly impacted by the cyber attack on the HSE IT systems which occurred three weeks ago.
Vaccinations continue to be rolled out, with the vaccine portal for people aged 40 to 44 opening this week with those aged 43 allowed to book today. The registration will open for people aged 40 to 42 in the next few days.
