'Nobody is judging anybody' - HSE CEO tells unvaccinated it isn't too late to get jab

The CEO of the Health Service Executive (HSE) has said it isn't too late for people to get the covid-19 vaccine, stating in a press conference that "nobody is judging anybody". 

Paul Reid made the comments at lunchtime today and revealed approximately 1800 people per day are coming forward to register for vaccination. 

He stated that unvaccinated people should "take encouragement from that".

He continued and said, "It's never too late, nobody is judging anybody in terms of when or how they come through for vaccination. We're there to support people and make them feel comfortable coming forward."
