Covid Booster Vaccinations On Offer To Those Aged 18-49 year olds.

A Covid-19 booster vaccination is to be offered to anyone aged between 18 to 49 years of age, the Health Service Executive (HSE) has confirmed, with appointment bookings being encouraged from today.

Same information comes as hospitals remain under severe pressure with significant numbers of people waiting for admission, lying on trolleys in emergency departments; same situation driven by a sudden rise in respiratory infections, including Covid-19 and the flu.

The number of patients in our hospitals today, having come into contact with the Covid-19 virus is 723, down 14 patients on yesterday’s declared figure, with 38 patients in ICU, the latter being a rise of 6 on yesterday’s number. Just 7 days previously, there were 655 patients with the virus in our hospital wards.

People are being encouraged to attend at central vaccination clinics, and note, booster vaccine will also be available from your local GPs and pharmacies.
