COVID-19: Irish PM Says No Jab Needed to Return to Office
Micheál Martin stated that the government would avoid making such a distinction and that returning to work meant a return to livelihoods.
He also lauded the country’s Covid-19 vaccination rollout, which has reached 86 percent of eligible individuals. So far, 5.72 million doses have been provided, with 71% of the eligible population receiving full vaccination and 86% receiving partial vaccination. Mr Martin claimed that 96.9% of vaccines available in Ireland have been administered, placing Ireland “far ahead” of EU statistics.
Eamon Ryan, the leader of the Green Party, has previously stated that he expected many workers to return to work in September. In Northern Ireland, 83 percent of adults over the age of 18 have got their first dose, with 70.9 percent receiving their second.
