Ireland will not be suspending use of the AstraZeneca vaccine, amid safety concerns.
More than 105,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine have been administered here so far.
Several EU countries have temporarily stopped using the jab after reports of blood clots in some patients who've received it.
The concern relates to a batch of vaccines that was sent to 17 EU states, and contains 1 million doses.
But the National Immunisation Advisory Committee says it's not changing its advice on the jab.
In a statement, it says it is aware of the recent reports but says the EMA "has reviewed the available evidence and has stated that the benefits of this vaccine outweigh any potential risk and can continue to be used."
NIAC says further detailed assessments are being carried out and it will keep the situation under review.
Prof Karina Butler, Chair of NIAC said: “The best vaccine to get is the one that you can get soonest. All vaccines are extremely effective in protecting against COVID related hospitalisation and severe disease.”
