There have been 1,828 new cases of COVID-19 in Ireland.

The latest available figures show there are 198 patients in hospital with the virus - 33 of these are in ICU.

The Department of Health says the case numbers may change due to a future data update.

It comes as walk-in COVID-19 vaccination centres open across the country this weekend.

They are open to anyone who is set to receive their first dose of Pfizer who is aged 16 and over.

Those who already have an appointment booked can also use the walk-in facilities.

The head of the HSE, Paul Reid, said officials feel there is still more "potential" to vaccinate people through the centres, following a successful campaign during the bank holiday weekend.

"We do feel that there's still a further potential in walk-in facility process.

"Therefore we will be running these again this coming week - the three days over the weekend.

"We do feel that last weekend we will have captured probably most of this opportunity that there is there.

"But we once again open the facility to see if there are some further people that we can cover and capture through this process once again".

Tweeting earlier, he said Ireland is now at a "key juncture" to path our way out of COVID-19.
