A Booster Programme Oversight Group, chaired by Professor Brian MacCraith, has been established to support the Department of Health and HSE in the rollout of the booster programme and the rollout of primary regimen to younger children (5-11) as appropriate. It meets weekly and the latest meeting was on 6th December.

As of December 7th, more than 941,000 booster doses have been administered since the rollout began. Ireland currently has the fourth-highest rate of booster administration in the European Union.
