The Government’s Covid-19 vaccination task force will meet later today to discuss the roll out of a vaccine.

The Health Minister says a vaccine is unlikely to be here in December but should become available early in 2021.

It comes as the country enters the last day of Level 5 restrictions.

The EU's done an advance deal for six vaccines, while Ireland has signed up to four of them.

We're due to get 1.1% of those, which is about 15 million doses.

Professor of Immunology at NUI Maynooth, Paul Moynagh, thinks Ireland "should be in a good place" with a Covid-19 vaccine by next summer.
