'We encourage everyone to check their vaccination status - especially those aged 18-49 who are due their second booster - and come along, or make an appointment, for a clinic near you,' said Dr Anne Sheahan, area director of public health for Cork and Kerry.

'It is a very safe vaccine and will offer added protection. Numbers are stabilising, but people can still become very sick with the infection and our best ammunition against COVID is vaccination.'
