The Republic of Ireland's hospitality rules have เข้าเกม slotxo helped Covid-19 vaccination rates surpass Northern Ireland's, NI's chief scientific adviser says.
Ireland requires people to prove they have received both jabs to enter indoor venues.
Prof Ian Young says the hospitality guidelines have "incentivised" vaccination, adding that he will "clearly support" any policy encouraging people to get vaccinated.
Speaking to the BBC's Good Morning Ulster programme, he says: "For a long time the vaccination programme in Northern Ireland was leading in terms of the island of Ireland, we rolled it out really effectively.
"Just over the weekend the Republic of Ireland has passed us. There are probably many reasons for that but I'm sure that one of the reasons has been that people are incentivised to get vaccinated as a result of wanting to get into the hospitality sector."
About 76% of Ireland's adult population is fully vaccinated compared to 72.1% in Northern Ireland.
