Health Minister: impact of vaccinations is being offset by more people moving around the country

Stephen Donnelly has told the Dáil the number of vaccinations will increase significantly from April.

He also said AstraZeneca will not deliver the contracted amount of vaccines for quarter one.

Minister Donnelly says the work of the vaccine campaign has been offset by more social interaction:

"What we're seeing is a big fall in cases associated with the vaccinated cohorts and that big fall unfortunately is being offset by an increase in cases associated with increased mobility, and increased interactions."
