Stephen Donnelly Says Vaccine Roll-Out On Target But Is Ridiculed For Date Reference Mistake

The Health Minister says the vaccine rollout programme is not a race to the end of June.

Stephen Donnelly says he believes 82 per cent of the adult population will have been vaccinated by then, but he doesn’t want people to be fixated by that date. The programme received a boost yesterday after the Johnson and Johnson and AstraZeneca injections were approved for use in the over 50s. However Minister Donnelly is facing criticism on Social Media after he said it means the vaccine roll-out remains on track for June 31st, a date which doesn’t exist .
