The vaccines ere given from the vaccination centres in Donegal which include the centre at LYIT and the satellite centres in Carndonagh and Burtonport, along with the original programme for healthcare workers which started in Letterkenny University Hospital.
A spokesperson for Saolta confirmed the 100,000 vaccines are a mix of dose 1 and dose 2.
The spokesperson added that they were delighted with how the vaccination programme has gone in the county.
“We are extremely pleased with this progress and we look forward to continuing to provide vaccines from our vaccination centres as part of the ongoing rollout of the vaccination programme.
