More recently, the response to Ireland’s vaccination program has been encouraging, and now less than 91% of the population aged 16 or over is fully protected through vaccination. “Our collective efforts have protected thousands of people from experiencing the worst outcomes of Covid-19,” said Dr. Holohan.
“As more of the activities we enjoy become available to us this week, it is important that we continue this national effort to break the chains of transmission of Covid-19. Vaccination remains the best prevention method, and if vaccination is available to you, I strongly encourage you to get vaccinated. complete as quickly as possible.»
