Expert Says Predicted Plans For Vaccination Unrealistic

Plans to vaccinate the majority of people by the end of the summer is highly unlikely, according to an immunologist.

It follows the suggestion by the head of the National Immunisation Advisory Committee that we could see the bulk of the population given a vaccine against Covid-19 before Autumn.
875,000 doses of a vaccine have been ordered for Ireland, while 3,600 of the new Moderna vaccine arrived into the country yesterday.
However Immunologist, Dr. Lara Dungan, says a summer target isn't realistic
