A mass Covid-19 vaccination programme for Northern Ireland healthcare workers could begin in just over a fortnight, it has emerged.

Health trusts have told staff they are aiming to begin vaccination clinics on December 14 and run them into early 2021.

However, the commencement of the vaccination programme is reliant upon a number of vaccines in late-stage trials getting regulatory approval, which is expected in the coming days.
