Half of Ireland’s adult population will be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 by the end of today, according to the Minister for Health.
Stephen Donnelly said over 4.3 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines have been administered so far in the State.
Over 67% of adults have received at least one Covid-19 vaccine.
“By the end of today half our adult population will have full vaccination,” Donnelly tweeted.
The news comes as young people aged between 18-34-years-old are allowed to access the single-shot Johnson and Johnson from today in participating pharmacies.
The move will allow younger people get access to a vaccine quicker than anticipated.
