The number of people registering for a Covid-19 vaccination has increased, according to the HSE Chief Executive.
Paul Reid said registrations have risen from around 1,000 a day to between 2,000-2,500 daily.
He said there are “a range of initiatives over the next week, right throughout Halloween, to get to those people who are unvaccinated and encourage them to come forward”.
“We would be hopeful that the message is getting through to those people to come forward, get advice and register for the vaccine.”
The World Health Organisation’s Director General also appealed to people in Ireland to get vaccinated.
Speaking virtually at the Draw Our Heroes art competition prize giving ceremony in Dublin, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said “continue to vaccinate, to take vaccinations and at the same time also not forgetting public health measures, which are also very important because we’re not still out of the woods”.
