After 100 days of the vaccine rollout Ireland has passed 1 million doses administered.
We have already seen that infection rates in vaccinated groups have fallen dramatically, allowing nursing home visits to return in the last few weeks. There has been a collapse of COVID-19 case numbers in frontline healthcare workers since the commencement of the vaccination programme. There has been more than a 95% drop in hospital staff confirmed cases at the end of February, compared to the peak in January.
As of Good Friday, 17% of Ireland’s population have had at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, that’s one in six adults, with 7% of our most vulnerable fully inoculated.
