Health officials expect that 180,000 more people will receive a vaccination against Covid-19 this week.
It comes as the National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) meets today to consider further possible recommendations on the use of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine.
Many EU countries have introduced age restrictions on the use of the vaccine, limiting its use to older people.
The UK has limited the use of the vaccine to those aged over 30 years, while France has limited the vaccine to over 55s.
Ireland’s Covid-19 vaccination program is set to rise substantially over the next three months.
