Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has said the government's target of having 82% of adults in Ireland vaccinated with a first dose by June can still be met.

He told The Last Word that while the speed of the vaccination programme impacts on the reopening of the country, it is one of several factors, and the government's contingency plan should the target not be reached will be to "set a new one".

He also spoke to Matt about a number of other issues, including NIAC's forthcoming recommendation on the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
