Targets For Johnson And Johnson Vaccine Delivery In June Will Not Be Met

Ireland could get as little as 12% of its promised vaccine allocation from Johnson and Johnson in June, according to the Health Minister.

Issues with regulatory approval for one of the manufacturer's US plants will mean a significant shortfall in delivery next month.

It puts the government's target of giving 82 per cent of adults a first dose by the end of June in doubt.

The Health Minister, Wicklow T.D.  Stephen Donnelly says the scenarios are not good.
