Vaccine Update: Vaccination rate continues to increase

Monday the 26th, the last day we have information for, saw 18,369 vaccines administered, more than twice the number vaccines administered on Monday the 19th. The number of vaccines administered per week has increased week-ok-week for the past three weeks, increasing from 125,302 at the start of the month to 183,102 at the end of last week.

The total number of doses administered, as of the 26th, was 1,417,942 with 1,014,640 of those being the 1st dose, and 403,302 of those being 2nd doses. The average number of doses administered per day, over the last seven days, is now 27,572.

As of the 26th 108,557 first doses have been administered to Cohort 1, those in “long-term residential care facilities.” That number includes both patients and staff.

254,465 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.

445,990 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.

140,430 first doses have been administered to Cohort 4, those “aged 16-69 at very high risk.” 937 first doses have been administered to Cohort 7, those “aged 16-59 at high risk.”

63,802 first doses have been administered to Cohort 5, which consists of “all those aged 60-69” who are not in any other Cohort.
