Regions to speed up vaccinations after delivery assurances

4:24 min
  • Some 80,000 have now been vaccinated against Covid-19 which is about half of the number of doses delivered since the programme began.
  • Citing supply concerns, many regions have been stockpiling the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to be sure everyone vaccinated so far gets a second jab.
  • Acting on concerns from the Public Health Agency, Emma Spak at SKR says regions will now use up every dose and "soon catch up".
