People waiting for a second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine can expect to be vaccinated before mid-July.

The HSE says it expects that the remaining 450,000 people, waiting for their second dose,  will receive the jab within 5 weeks.

The health service executive is  introducing advice from the National Immunisation Advisory Committee, to reduce dose intervals from 12 to 8 weeks.

 

Meanwhile, 283 new cases of Covid-19 were confirmed yesterday evening by the Department of Health.

60 people are currently in hospital with the virus, that's down 7 since the previous day, with 23 of these patients in ICU.
