Tipperary people who are eligible for a booster jab are being advised to get their flu and COVID-19 vaccine ahead of a surge of infections this winter.

Dr Eithne Mulloy, a HSE Senior Respiratory Physician is warning that “COVID-19 is still an ever-present threat. It hasn’t gone away.

The medical adviser to the Midwest COVID-19 Vaccination Programme
says people aged between 60-64-year-olds have been eligible for a second vaccine booster since August.

Dr Mulloy believes it’s of critical importance that they protect themselves and others.

Nationally there’s been an increase in hospitalisation relating to covid however  numbers of patients requiring critical care for the disease were still relatively low because of the level of vaccination to date.
