An Irish doctor is claiming that there are up to 200 GPs that still have no covid-19 vaccines for people over the age of 85.

The HSE insists only a ‘relatively small number’ of practices are having issues with their vaccine supplies.

However, the executive insists that it is on target to administer the first dose of a covid injection to this age cohort by the end of this week.

Monaghan based GP Dr Illona Duffy says she's aware of two other practices in Monaghan Town that still have no vaccines for their over 85s.

She says the affected GPS still don't know when they will be given supplies.

Dr Duffy says "we're aware that about 200 practices have not received vaccines, and it's really not good enough.

It comes after it emerged Ireland missed its target of 100,000 vaccinations last week.
