There have been 373 new cases of COVID-19 reported in Ireland today.
The number of people in hospital with the virus stands at 54, with 18 of those are being treated in intensive care.
The five-day moving average now stands at 308 cases.
There have been three additional hospitalisations over the past 24 hours.
However, the number in ICU is down one since yesterday.
Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan says there's now been "near elimination" of COVID-19 in the vaccinated population.
He said: "For the 50-65’s who are in the process of receiving protection from full vaccination, incidence is dropping.
"Incidence is also reducing in most age groups, showing commendable compliance with public health measures as the vaccination programme is rolled out to more and more people.
“If you are fully vaccinated you can safely resume normal life - meeting other fully vaccinated people from up to two households indoors without masks or social distancing, and meeting unvaccinated people from one other household indoors and without masks.
"Those of us awaiting vaccination should continue to wash/sanitize hands regularly, manage contacts, avoid crowds, wear masks where appropriate and socialise outdoors.”
Vaccine registration will open for those aged 35-39 from Sunday.
