**The 7 day average of total vaccine doses administered has now fallen to 24,612, the lowest level recorded since the HSE started releasing daily vaccination numbers. The average number of doses administered per day has fallen by nearly 40% since the 9th of February.**

Between Sunday the 7^{th} and Saturday the 13^{th} of February, the last day we have data for, 24,612 doses of vaccine were administered in the Republic, with 21,048 of those being first doses and 3,564 of those being second doses. The daily average number of total doses administered is now 3,516.

Over the same seven day period Northern Ireland administered 95,186 doses of vaccine, nearly four times more than the Republic, averaging roughly 13,500 vaccinations a day. NI vaccinated nearly 5% of their population over this 7 day period, working roughly 10 times faster than the Republic, which vaccinated roughly 0.5% of its population over that time, on a per capita basis.

Daily reporting of vaccinating numbers only goes back to the 3^{rd} of February, meaning that the 9^{th} of February is the earliest day from which we can show 7 day vaccination averages. On the 9^{th} of February the daily average number of doses administered was 5,628, with 39,393 doses having been administered between the 3^{rd} and the 9^{th}. Those numbers have declined day-on-day since that date.
