The first delivery of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine has arrived into Ireland today.

Taking to Twitter to share the news, Head of the HSE Paul Reid wrote: “An early morning start to a momentous day. Heading off to take receipt of the first delivery of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for the HSE,” Reid said.

“There will be better days ahead for sure. For now, #StaySafe,” he said.

Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly has said that tens of thousands of doses of the vaccine will arrive into the country from early January.

Under the plan for the rollout of the vaccine, residents of long-term care facilities over the age of 65 and frontline healthcare workers in direct contact with patients will be first in line.

People aged 85 and older and those aged 70 and older will be next to receive the vaccine, followed by other healthcare workers and people aged between 65 and 69.
