HSE Being Asked To Examine Possibility Of Running 24 Hour Vaccination Centres

The National Public Health Emergency Team has asked the HSE to look at the possibility of running mass vaccination centres on a 24-hour basis.

However, the Executive says the vaccine programme is reliant on supply, and also people presenting for their jab - but will extend the roll-out as needed to keep up with supply.

Latest figures show 1.6 million vaccines have been administered in Ireland, including 1.1 million first doses.

It comes as the five-day moving average of new Covid-19 cases has increased by 8 percent in the past week.

The figure was 437 last Tuesday but has increased to 470 this week.

There has also been a 9 percent rise in the 14-day incidence rate over the same period, from 122 cases per 100,000 people to 134.

383 new coronavirus cases were reported yesterday - the median age of those infected was 28.
