The Government said it is now on target to give 80% of adults their first Covid jab by the end of June.
And even better news is that we are also on target to ease restrictions even more in May!
The Taoiseach and Tánaiste spoke after a double setback to the vaccine rollout earlier this week.
An extra 550,000 doses of the Pfizer jab to be delivered in quarter two of this year was just the shot in the arm that was needed.
In a video posted later on Twitter, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said the State was on track to exit further restrictions in early May, despite “twists and turns”.
“We’re on track as well to ease restrictions on the 4th of May so lots of things to be positive about,” he said.
“Of course there’s going to be twists and turns. That was always going to be the case but just wanted to reassure you about those things.”
