orthern Eire’s First Minister has acquired her first dose of Covid-19 vaccine.
The 50-year-old politician turned eligible for the vaccine earlier this month when Northern Eire’s programme opened to the 50-and-over age cohort.
Stormont deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill and Well being Minister Robin Swann must wait to be vaccinated as they’re within the 40 to 49 age bracket.
As of Friday, 825,310 vaccines had been administered in Northern Eire – 711,673 of which had been first doses and 113,637 had been second doses.
The area is on target to supply first jabs to all the grownup inhabitants – 1.4 million – by July.
On Monday a brand new mass vaccination centre will start operations in Belfast’s SSE Area.
