Vaccine Update: Just under 200,000 vaccines administered last week

Between Monday the 26th and Tuesday the 2nd, the last days we have information for, 198,591 vaccines were administered. This represented a roughly 7% increase on the number of vaccines administered over the previous week.

The total number of doses administered, as of the 2nd, was 1,604,644 with 1,159,083 of those being the 1st dose, and 445,561 of those being 2nd doses. The average number of doses administered per day, over the last seven days, is now 28,370.

As of the 2nd 109,349 first doses have been administered to Cohort 1, those in “long-term residential care facilities.” That number includes both patients and staff.

256,044 first doses have been administered to Cohort 2, “frontline healthcare workers” – a number substantially higher than the total number estimated to be working in the sector.

455,228 first doses have been administered to those in Cohort 3, which consists of those 70 and older who are not in long-term residential care.  The CSO estimates that there are 490,000 people in this cohort.

202,400 first doses have been administered to Cohort 4, those “aged 16-69 at very high risk.” 1,332 first doses have been administered to Cohort 7, those “aged 16-59 at high risk.”

128,385 first doses have been administered to Cohort 5, which consists of “all those aged 60-69” who are not in any other Cohort.
