Weve been "blown away" by attendances at walk in clinics. Young people in Ireland have been to the fore of changing this country for the better. Now they've come out in numbers to protect themselves & us. And we're now ahead of the UK for % of adults fully vaccinated! @HSELive

Around 10,000 people are said to have received a first dose of a vaccine at a walk-in vaccination centre yesterday.
HSE chief executive Paul Reid says they were "blown away" by the numbers attending.
Walk-in clinics - which are open to everyone aged 16 or older - are continuing today and tomorrow at many of the country's vaccination centres.
