A single dose of vaccine is sufficient for those already infected by Covid-19, revealed a study by Hyderabad's AIG Hospitals. There were 295 doses administered with zone of residence pending.
The person who died was in 80-plus age range and from the Saskatoon zone.
Meanwhile, there are 62 people in hospital with the disease, including 22 people in intensive care.
Mr O'Loughlin said: "The HSE and the National Immunisation Advisory Committee (Niac) are not supporting that yet so anyone who has had their first dose of AstraZeneca is going to have to wait to get their second dose of AstraZeneca from the vaccination programme".
Health authorities in Dubai have confirmed that in the six months since the Covid-19 immunization drive began in the emirate, over 2.3 million people have been vaccinated.

More than 26 crore (26,64,84,350) vaccine doses have been provided to states/UTs so far, through the Government of India (free of cost channel) and through the direct state procurement category.
The seven-day average of daily new cases sits at 78, or 6.4 per 100,000 population. Someone age 69 at their first dose and 70 at their second will now be counted in the 70-79 group for both doses, resulting in a decrease in the 60-69 first dose number.
