50 percent of adults are now fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
HSE CEO Paul Reid says the milestone has been reached, while 69 percent have had at least one dose of a vaccine.
It's expected that all adults could be fully protected against severe effects of Covid-19 by the end of August or early September.
Brian MacCraith, who chairs the vaccination taskforce believes that target can be reached if there is enough supply.
There are now over 50% of the adult population fully vaccinated, with 69% had their Dose 1. A total of 4.42M vaccines administered to date with 245,000 completed last week. We're working hard to protect as many people as quickly as possible. @HSELive
