Over 65's and the immunocompromised are to be offered another Covid 19 vaccine.
NIAC has issued new advice that people in those cohorts should receive a second booster jab.
Health Minister Stephen Donnelly says the HSE will now work on the rollout of the latest dose for those who need it.
"The main new advice is that a second MRNA booster for those aged 65 and older and for the immunocompromised aged over 12 that a second booster should be offered four to six months after the first booster.
"That's what we'll be working now with the HSE to put in place."
