Wicklow Ranks High For Covid Vaccine Uptake

Around 10% of eligible people in eight counties remain unvaccinated against Covid-19.

New HSE figures show Waterford, Wexford and Carlow have the highest uptake rates.

Figures up to the start of last week show Waterford has the highest uptake rate with 96.6% of over 12's fully vaccinated.

It's 96.4% in Carlow, 95% in Wexford and over 94% in Wicklow, Tipperary and Sligo.

Monaghan on 80.9% has the lowest uptake rate followed by Donegal on 81.3% and Laois on 84.7%.

Those three counties are also at the bottom of the table when it comes to first doses.

And there are five others - Offaly, Longford, Dublin, Cavan and Kilkenny - where more than 1 in 10 people who are eligible for a vaccine haven't got one.
