A total of 783 additional cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed in the past 24 hours. 73 patients are in hospital, with 20 of those patients in intensive care (ICU).
“We know that the Delta variant is now responsible for most cases in Ireland and that it is at least twice as transmissible than the previous dominant variant.” said Professor Philip Nolan, Chair of the NPHET Irish Epidemiological Modelling Advisory Group.
“We have seen incidence increase significantly over the last two weeks, especially in unvaccinated groups. Infections are now growing at 2-4% per day.”
All you need to register is a mobile number, email address, your PPS number and your Eircode. You can make an appointment free of charge at vaccine.hse.ie.
Appointments will be scheduled three or four weeks after registration so you can expect to get your first vaccination in August.
