In Ireland, 91 percent of the population aged 12 and over are vaccinated. Nevertheless, there are more people with Covid-19 in hospital than there have been since the wave in March. Booster vaccinations are required, as well as total compulsory vaccination.
Covid vaccinations work. Allegedly. At least limited. This is made clear by the current figures from Ireland. A state in which such a high percentage vaccinated against the disease is like nowhere else in the European Union. According to official figures, it is 91 percent of all people aged 12 and over.
Still, Irish hospitals currently have 513 patients who are Covid positive. The island nation knows such figures from the last wave in March of this year. 97 of them are in intensive care units. A clear plus within a few days.
According to the Irish Times said Dr. Anne Moore, a vaccine specialist at UCC, said until there is a “transmission-inhibiting vaccine”, since the protection against transmission that current vaccines offer has already waned. “I think we will eventually have to vaccinate the rest of the population because the number of cases will increase tremendously,” she said. And that even though the majority of patients are vaccinated?
A wave of booster vaccinations is coming
That means, in the coming weeks and months you will probably be in Ireland a wave of booster vaccinations carry out. For those over 80, these have already taken place – the next one is across the entire population.
It is not for nothing that Moderna is already working on two new, different “booster” vaccinations, such as the Swiss “view”Reported.
These are supposed to protect against the new variants that are currently in circulation. These could then perhaps serve as a second booster vaccination in Ireland if the first booster loses its already rudimentary effect.
