It's hoped the online registration system for vaccines will open next week.

The one millionth dose of a Covid-19 vaccine has been administered in Ireland today.

The HSE has also confirmed between 180,000 and 190,000 doses will be given across the country next week.

But it'll be late this month or early next month before a quarter of a million jabs are being administered on a weekly basis.

HSE chief executive Paul Reid says the programme will ramp up next week.

Meanwhile, the health minister says he's 'open' to giving more freedom to people who have been fully vaccinated.

Fully vaccinated people may no longer have to isolate if they are identified as a close contact of a Covid case.

It's one of several 'vaccine bonus' proposals being considered today by NPHET.
