The head of the HSE says 100,000 people will receive a Covid 19 vaccine this week.

The latest figures show almost 206,000 first doses and over 120,000 second doses have been given.

It comes as the government finalises changes to the vaccine priority list, which could see thousands of people with an underlying condition getting vaccinated sooner than originally planned.

Paul Reid says vaccination efforts will ramp up this week.
