Those who are aged between 35 and 59 will be eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccine in June as Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly stated that those in their 40s will be vaccinated in parallel to those in their 50s.
Vaccinations for those aged 24-34 will begin around July according to the Department of Health.
With the state receiving its largest shipment of AstraZeneca vaccinations to date, the doses are expected to be used with immediate effect for those aged 50-70 although a revised vaccination plan is being drawn up by the HSE.
Vaccinations for people at very high risk as well as those over 70 and 60 will be well advanced in May according to the Department of Health.
Currently, there is no prediction for when people aged 16-24 will be vaccinated.
