Minister for Higher Education Simon Harris said next week is an exciting time for the education sector.

“To coincide with this, my Department and the HSE have been working together to ensure we are doing everything we can to make our third level campuses as safe as is possible,” Minister Harris said.

“There is no greater protection from Covid-19 than the vaccine. We have already seen a great uptake from young people and vaccination week offers anyone who hasn’t received their first or second dose to seek protection,” he added.
