The military is to support the rollout of the local Covid-19 vaccination programme.

Northern Ireland received its largest delivery of jabs this week ahead of the planned opening of a mass vaccination centre at Belfast’s SSE Arena within weeks. Officials hope to be able to administer 40,000 shots a week.
