Half of all adults in Ireland have now received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The HSE confirmed today that 50% of the adult population have now got their first dose.
While 20% of these people are fully vaccinated – no exact figures have been made available.
Paul Reid, CEO of the HSE, confirmed the details via his Twitter account today.
“The vaccination programme is now making great headway. Over one million done in May, 2.7 million in total.
“50% of adult population had a dose one and close to 20% dose two. Reduced illness, sickness, mortality and a massive take up,” he said.
