Dublin Castle. Dublin 2.
Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications and Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan speaking to media before a meeting of the Cabinet.
He said most people who received the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine will have got their second jab by the time international travel restrictions are eased next month.
Responding to reports that hundreds of thousands waiting on their second dose will not be able to travel abroad, Mr Ryan said they would be getting texts in the coming weeks to attend appointments for their next inoculation.
“This mainly applies to those over 60 who have got a first AstraZeneca jab,” he told RTÉ’s Morning Ireland.
