    The Queen has encouraged those who are hesitant about getting the COVID-19 vaccine to “think about other people rather than themselves”.

    Her Majesty, who never talks about her own private health matters in public, endorsed the importance of the vaccination programme during a video call to those co-ordinating the operations across England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

    Talking about her own experience of having the COVID jab in January, the Queen said: “Once you’ve had the vaccine you have a feeling of, you know, you’re protected, which is I think very important.

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
