Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said a website allowing people to register for a Covid-19 vaccine will available from the third week in April.
Martin told the Dáil 70 per cent of the population should be fully inoculated against the virus by the end of July.
Martin said the Government aimed to be at the “latter end of the vaccination programme” in July and August.
He said the new priority list would ensure the most vulnerable were vaccinated first and the target is to give 80 per cent of people their first vaccine dose by the end of June.
He added that there will be “intense vaccination” during the summer months, with more companies coming on stream to supply jabs, such as Johnson and Johnson.
