Almost 500 Ukrainian refugees arrived in Ireland yesterday bringing the total since the conflict started to around 1,800.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said work is continuing to establish where the expected 100,000 total refugees will be housed here.
The UN estimated so far more than 1.7 million people have fled the country amid the invasion from Russia, while the European Union estimates to total number of refugees as a result of the war might hit five million.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin says those arriving in Ireland will be given access to accommodation, healthcare and education:
"The bottom line is this is an exceptional humanitarian crisis, brought about by a war.
"It's a wartime situation, therefore our responses have to be different to a non-wartime situation.
"All of us have to do everything we possibly can to make those services accessible to Ukrainians fleeing war."
The Health Minister says Ukrainian refugees coming to Ireland will have full access to healthcare including medical cards.
A Covid vaccination programme for those arriving here is also being developed.
Just over a third of Ukrainians are fully vaccinated against the virus.
Minister Stephen Donnelly says doses will be made available as soon as possible:
"We'll put that in place very quickly - we have a very robust vaccine system here.
"For anyone coming in, we're making full healthcare facilities available to them.
"They'll have medical cards, they'll have access to vaccination and people to discuss it with, if they need."
