Healthcare workers to get first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine today


Healthcare workers will start to get the first dose of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine from today.

It's after the first 21,600 doses of the vaccine arrived in the country on Saturday, although 35,000 were promised by the end of this week.

Meanwhile, GPs will start the roll-out of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines from today to those aged over 85.

Deliveries will be prioritised to areas with a higher proportion of older people.
