Health bosses in Northern Ireland have no plans to delay the administration of the Covid-19 vaccine to people who have already had the virus, it can be revealed.

They were speaking after the chair of the National Immunisation Advisory Committee in the Republic said vaccination of people who have already had Covid-19 may be delayed there.

NIAC chair Professor Karina Butler said: "There is a suggestion coming out that if you have had Covid, you might be fairly well protected for six months and in that case, we might find the advice will change and it will say, 'If you have had Covid, wait the six months and then get it [the vaccine]."
