There continues to be a good uptake of Covid vaccinations across the country

Over 93 percent of the region's eligible population has received a full dose Covid-19 vaccination.

That's according to new information from the Health Protection and Surveillance Centre that shows the national uptake at 92 percent.

The updated figures include full doses of a recognised Covid-19 vaccine in Ireland and not subsequent booster shots.
