Vaccine Rollout Update

Mary was delighted to recently receive her one shot J&J vaccine at the mass vaccination centre in the Helix Dublin.

The HSE says 2.6 million vaccine doses have been administered. 1.8 million of those are first doses and just over 800,000 are second doses.

Registration on the online system is open for all those aged 45 to 69 years. 

Among those aged 60 to 69 years, nearly 89% have started vaccination. 

Among those aged 50 to 59 years, we have a registration rate in excess of 86% and growing all the time, of whom more than 70% have started vaccination.  Encouragingly, of those aged 40 to 49 years, more than 45% have registered or started vaccination.  These are the people aged 45 to 49 years for whom the portal is open. 

By the end of May it is estimated that 50% of the eligible adult population will have received one dose.
