The one millionth dose of Covid-19 vaccine is due to be administered in Ireland today.
The Government had previously aimed to get 1.25 million doses given to people by the end of March - however there were supply issues.
Meanwhile, nine further Covid-19 related deaths were reported last night by the Department of Health - only one of which occurred this month - while there were 443 new cases of the disease reported.
This includes 12 in Galway, 8 in Mayo and less than 5 in counties Roscommon, Sligo and Leitrim.
The five-day moving average number of cases now stands at 463, which is almost 15 percent lower than last week.
