The Chief Medical Officer has said the country could be in a position to ease covid-19 restrictions further in the coming weeks.

Dr. Tony Holohan says great progress has been made since restrictions started lifting in May.

He says we're in a strong position due to the vaccination rollout.

As of today  over 70% of adults are now fully vaccinated, with 85% of adults having received at least one dose.

It's getting even easier to get a vaccine from this weekend, when walk in vaccination centres open - with at least one in every county.

Dr Tony Holohan said today that “Given the progress we are making in terms of vaccination, notwithstanding where we are at with the disease, we think that we might, in the coming weeks, be in a situation where we are able to reach the kinds of requirements we think need to be reached to enable us to move away with some of the economic and social restrictions.”
