Nine in ten eligible adults in the Republic of Ireland have been fully vaccinated, the Irish health service has said.
More than 7 million vaccines are to have been administered in Ireland by Friday.
Taoiseach (Irish PM) Micheál Martin described reaching the 90% vaccination threshold and the seven millionth vaccine as “two major milestones”.
The vaccine rollout is continuing, with children aged 12 and over now eligible.
On Friday, the chief executive of Ireland’s Health Service Executive (HSE), Paul Reid, said hospitalisations in Ireland were “trending downwards”.
