Every person who wants a Covid-19 vaccine could be offered one by the end of June, according to the Tanaiste.

Leo Varadkar told his parliamentary party last night it's possible based on international evidence that 10 to 15 percent refuse the jab.

However, he said the official target is still to offer 82 percent a first dose in that period.

It comes as 110 people are being treated in public hospitals for Covid-19.

That's an increase of 1 in the past 24 hours - while in a week the figure has dropped by more than nine percent.

34 people are in ICUs, with 28 of those on ventilators.

It comes as 448 new cases of the virus and 8 deaths were reported yesterday.
