Vaccine Update: Over 170,000 vaccines administered last week

Between Monday the 19th and Saturday the 24th, the last day we have data for, we administered 170,757 vaccines. This is the highest number of vaccines we have ever administered in a single week, and an increase of roughly 30,000 over the week before.

The total number of doses administered, as of the 24th, was 1,385,753 with 987,681 of those being the 1st dose, and 398,072 of those being 2nd doses. The average number of doses administered per day, over the last seven days, is now 24,534.

As of the 24th 108,509 first doses have been administered to Cohort 1, those in “long-term residential care facilities.” That number includes both patients and staff.

254,267 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.

442,768 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.

134,222 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.”

46,559 first doses have been administered to Cohort 5, which consists of “all those aged 60-69” who are not in any other Cohort.
