The Health Minister has clarified that every adult in the country is be offered a Covid-19 vaccine by September.
Stephen Donnelly had told the Dáil the government is planning its programme "based on a supply of vaccines that would mean that every citizen can be vaccinated by September".
He clarified the comment later in the day.
However, it means no child in Ireland is likely to be vaccinated against Covid-19 by September.
By this Sunday, the government says around 142,000 people will have received their first dose of a covid-19 vaccine.
Minister Donnelly says Ireland is due to get 600,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine in the first quarter of the year.
