A detailed plan on when people can expect to be vaccinated will be published next week alongside the Government’s revised ‘Living with Covid-19’ strategy.
According to the Irish Times, Minister for Justice Helen McEntee has suggested that the vaccination programme will “provide people with some element” of hope as strict Covid-19 measures remain in place. She believes people will be relieved when they get a “clear picture” of where they fit into the vaccine rollout.
The Cabinet Sub-Committee on Covid-19 met last night and discussed plans to open schools on a phased basis from early March but to leave the current Level 5 restrictions in place.
Tough restrictions are expected to remain in force until early May.
Ms McEntee has said no dates have been decided as yet and the plans still have to be approved by the Cabinet.
