Vaccine Update: Nearly 40,000 vaccines administered Thursday

On Thursday, the 22nd, the last day we have data for, we administered 39,778 doses of vaccine. This is the largest number of vaccines we have ever administered in a single day.

The total number of doses administered, as of the 22nd, was 1,317,165 with 934,980 of those being the 1st dose, and 382,185 of those being 2nd doses. The average number of doses administered per day, over the last seven days, is now 22,192.

As of the 22nd 108,369 first doses have been administered to Cohort 1, those in “long-term residential care facilities.” That number includes both patients and staff.

253,261 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.

428,785 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.

117,883 first doses have been administered to Cohort 4, those “aged 16-69 at very high risk.” 215 first doses have been administered to Cohort 7, those “aged 16-59 at high risk.”

26,098 first doses have been administered to Cohort 5, which consists of “all those aged 60-69” who are not in any other Cohort.
