Gaps between Astra Zeneca vaccinations to be reduced

The vast majority of 450,000 people awaiting a second shot of the AstraZeneca vaccine will now receive their shot of the vaccination ahead of schedule under an accelerated rollout programme.


The target for health officials is to have the second dose of the vaccination administered by July 19th.


Medical experts claim the second dose offers 92% protection against the DeltCovida variant.


Minister for state at the Department of Health, Sligo Leitrim TD Frank Feighan is urging everyone to make sure they get their second vaccination as soon as possible.
