The State plans to vaccinate more than one million of the country's most vulnerable against Covid-19 in the coming months, with hopes that the first of those could receive the jab as early as next month.

As preparations to inoculate the nation intensify, the National Vaccine Taskforce is also likely to propose a twin roll-out of the vaccine across GP practices and in regional hubs, the Sunday Independent understands.
