The Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly has said that the aim is to have 700,000 people vaccinated against Covid-19 by the end of March.
In a series of Tweets, the Health Minister said the plan is to have all frontline health staff, nursing home residents and those aged 70+ vaccinated by the beginning of April.
Donnelly went on to say that the plan is based on the current allocations from Moderna, Pfizer and BioNtech and as well as the expected allocation from AstraZeneca which is subject to EMA approval.
The Health Minister said that it is hoped that 1.4 million doses will be made available to Ireland by the end of March and from April onwards the quantity of vaccines would be significantly increased.
A quick update on our vaccination plan. By the end of March, we aim to have vaccinated 700,000 people, including nursing home residents and staff, as well as frontline healthcare workers and people aged 70+.
