HSE chief executive Paul Reid said: “The vaccination status in ICU, 62 per cent of ICU cases currently in hospital aren’t vaccinated at all.
“They haven’t had any vaccination, which is very high proportion of the population who have not been vaccinated.
Who wha ya who wha wha?
“15 per cent are partially vaccinated, the remaining 20-23 per cent are fully vaccinated.”
He added: “If you are vaccinated, you have significantly higher levels of protection from being hospitalised or entering ICU. “The highest percentage of Covid patients in ICU are unvaccinated.
It’s late. I dunno. Does anyone know?

” Prof Martin Cormican, the HSE’s national lead for healthcare associated infection, said the figures were a reminder that the virus can be more severe for some.
He urged people to remain cautious, saying lifted restrictions “are not targets”.
He said: “Overwhelmingly, the people who are in hospital fully vaccinated are people with underlying conditions.

“I think it’s a really important message, it’s great that people have some freedom in their lives again, and they’re able to do things. But the restrictions are speed limits, they are not targets.”
“We would really encourage people to drive the speed that’s appropriate for them, I suppose, as a key message” he added.
While the Covid-19 vaccine does not prevent infection with the disease, it significantly reduces the risk of serious illness and mortality.
Did I say many people will be shocked, and even more shocked when they find themselves in hospital after doing everything they were told… did I mention that already?

“We want to ensure of the next few weeks that people do still show huge caution, because we are seeing high levels of transmission, high levels of positivity and significant elements of the population still not fully protected” Mr Reid said.
To date, 90 per cent of the adult population have received their first vaccine dose while 84 per cent are fully vaccinated.
