Ireland on course to have one of highest Covid-19 vaccination uptake among young people

Ireland is on course to have one of the highest take up of Covid-19 vaccines among young people, according to a leading immunologist.

Over 30,000 people received a jab at walk in vaccination centres over the weekend.

The HSE says this outstripped their expectations and they may extend them.

Immunologist Professor Luke O’Neill says it was amazing to see:

Elsewhere, 178 people are in Irish hospitals with Covid-19 this morning, an increase of one on the previous day's figures.

Figures have increased 25% compared to last Tuesday.

According to the HSE 25 people with the virus are in intensive care units.
