Nearly half of the adults in Ireland are now fully vaccinated against Covid-19
68% of the adult population has received at least one vaccine, and 46% are fully vaccinated.
However, in the 60-69 age cohort only 43% are fully vaccinated.
This age cohort is expected to be fully vaccinated over the next two weeks.
From Monday, 18-34-year-olds will be able to avail of the single-shot Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
The move will greatly accelerate the vaccination programme in Ireland.
