Three South East vaccination centres are now ready for use.

The Hub at Cillรญn Hill in Kilkenny was recently launched by the HSE as part of the roll-out of Covid-19 vaccinations along with South Tipperary's Clonmel Park Hotel vaccination centre.

On Friday, March 5th, the HSE revealed another South East inoculation centre at WIT Arena in Waterford.

AstraZeneca has lowered targets for the delivery of its Covid-19 vaccine again - with Ireland getting 45 thousand fewer doses than planned this quarter.

The government's revised aim of 1.1 million doses before the end of March will still be met, due to extra Pfizer jabs on the way.

The Taoiseach met AstraZeneca's CEO last night to express "disappointment and frustration" with its changing delivery volumes.
