Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan said that there is no certainty that a vaccine for Covid-19 would be produced.

He said that even if a vaccine was developed, issues would remain, including about how long any immunity would last.

Holohan said the world was hopeful that a vaccine for Covid-19 could be produced, but that its production could not be regarded as a certainty.

He continued that even if a vaccine was produced, it would need to be distributed on a large scale around the world, and that issues would have to be examined including how strong the immunity would be and how long it would last.
