We are grateful for your continuing support in helping to share information about COVID-19. Below are a few communications updates for you.

Public Health Measures

Ireland is at level 5 restrictions.

You can see the measures in place here.

We ask everyone, for the protection of our friends, family and the frontline, to please stay at home.

COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

The vaccination programme continues to be rolled out nationwide, and more than 280,000 vaccines have been administered. This week we saw the vaccination programme go firmly out into the community, with people aged 85 and over beginning to be invited for their vaccines by GPs. When this group is complete, we’ll move on to the next age-group, people aged 80 and over.
