HSE Chief Paul Reid said today that people in their 50s are not expected to receive Covid-19 booster vaccines until the end of December, or early in 2022.
He said the HSE expects to have completed the roll out to a large portion of vulnerable groups by next month.
He further said that a large number of people in their sixties will have received a booster vaccine by the end of next month.
The vast majority of healthcare workers are also expected to have received a booster by the end of next month.

The HSE is also expecting to increase its intensive care bed capacity to 350.
