Irish pharmacies have now administered over a million covid 19 vaccines.

The Irish Pharmacy Union's encouraging all those who haven't yet got their booster dose to come forward.

It comes after the Health Minister Stephen Donnelly accepted NIAC's recommendation to give second boosters to 50 to 64 year-olds in the autumn.

Those aged 65 and over will be getting a third booster and children aged 5 to 11 who are immuno-compromised will be getting a first booster.

IPU President, Dermot Twomey says pharmacists would be ready to play a role in giving booster doses to these groups
