'Never Too Late' For People To Get COVID-19 Vaccine - HSE Boss


The head of the HSE says adults who decide not to be vaccinated are putting themselves and others at much higher risk from COVID-19.

Paul Reid says it's never too late to get the jab - as walk-in centres are up and running again this weekend.

People going to one of the clinics can receive their first or second dose of a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.

However, people are being advised to check the HSE website for full details on the individual vaccine clinics.

Yesterday, Ireland recorded more than 2,000 daily COVID-19 infections for the second time in a week.

Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan said it's vital that as "many people as possible" come forward for vaccination.

He said: "We must all remain vigilant to the risk of contracting COVID-19.

"Continue to socialise safely by risk assessing, meeting outdoors where possible. Only meet up with small numbers of people and avoid crowds. Remember, it is OK to leave if you do not feel safe."
