The Chief Executive of the HSE Paul Reid has confirmed that 3.1 million vaccines have been administered to date.
In a post on Twitter, Reid said that the vaccination programme along with public health measures are working as just 7% of reported cases are in those aged 55 and over.
Reid also said that there has been reduced sickness, hospitalisations and admissions to ICU.
The HSE Chiefs comments come as the vaccination portal is expected to open for those aged between 30 and 39 next week.
