Public asked if under-30s should be vaccinated before those under 50
We asked the Irish public if they thought the proposal to vaccinate under-30s before 30-50 year-olds was a good idea. The proposal is currently under review by the Department of Health.
People under 30 may receive a Covid-19 vaccine before people aged between 30 and 50 under plans being examined by the Department of Health.
This consideration is based on the fear that the younger cohort are more mobile and could spread the disease quicker than the 30-50 age groups once society reopens in a meaningful way.
