Nearly 88% of Irish adults are now fully vaccinated against Covid-19, according to new figures from HSE chief Paul Reid.
With 92% of adults partially vaccinated, Paul Reid stated that “the finishing line of this phase of the vaccination programme is so close now”, while adding that the HSE’s main focus “still remains to give as many as possible protection.”
This news comes as walk-in vaccination centres open over the weekend for those aged 12 years old and over.
Those aged 12 to 15 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
There will also be additional dose two clinics for those who have yet to receive their second vaccine dose.
Earlier this week, Director of the National Vaccination Programme Damien McCallion stated, “With schools soon returning after the summer break we are keen to ensure people have the best possible access to vaccination for their children.”
