People aged 30 to 39 to be called to register next,

70 per cent of the adult population should be fully vaccinated by the end of July, according to the Taoiseach.

30 to 39 year olds are expected to be able to register for their jab next week.

Over 3.1 million vaccines have been administered so far - with registration still open for 40 to 69 year olds.

Micheál Martin says Ireland is in a good position.

Tony O'Brien, former head of the HSE,  says it's vital people in their 30s are vaccinated soon.

Professor of Health Systems at DCU, Anthony Staines, says Ireland should be proud of itself but there’s still a way to go.
