Ireland is currently the fastest country in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) for administering Covid-19 vaccinations.
The figures show that Ireland, in the week leading up to July 18th, has been vaccinating 1.24% of the population per day.
In the last week alone, Ireland vaccinated 8.68% of the population.
The nation also ranks 12th in the 38 countries of the OECD in terms of vaccines administered.
The news comes as Ireland continues to expand its vaccination programme, with yesterday opening the portal for 18-24-year-olds to register for an AstraZeneca vaccine.
HSE CEO Paul Reid also said that the portal will open for 18-24-year-olds to register for an mRNA vaccine by the end of this month.
The mRNA vaccine will either be the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna.
