The Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney has seemingly poured cold water on the idea of people travelling abroad for a summer holiday.
Speaking to RTE, Coveney said that although he expects Ireland to be in a better place when the supply of vaccines increases, but he warned that trips abroad are still some way off.
The Foreign Affairs minister said that he expects Ireland to be administering around 250,000 vaccines per week from April and the Government would reevaluate restrictions as the vaccination programme progresses.
However he warned that it was important that we use the term vaccine Certificate rather than passport as he believes we are a long way from foreign travel.
Coveney’s comments come as the Government are reportedly considering introducing a system of green cards similar to that of the one introduced in Israel recently.
It is thought under the system those who have been vaccinated would be given a certificate that would allow them to enter public places such as cinema’s, gyms and other areas
