12-15 Year Old's Vaccination Uptake Slower Than Expected

The Covid-19 vaccine uptake in the 12-15 year olds is being described as  disappointing.

Figures released by the Minister for Health, Wicklow T.D. Stephen Donnelly, shows 56 per cent of the younger age group have received one dose of a vaccine. It comes as 1,470 cases of the virus were reported yesterday - with 334 patients in hospital, 59 of those are in ICU.
