The vaccination of more than one million people here is momentous for our whole society, the First Minister has said.

She was speaking after it was confirmed that 1,000,928 people have now received at least one dose of a vaccine.

First Minister Arlene Foster said: “Today is a hugely significant milestone in our fightback against Covid. The vaccination is not only a life-saver; it is key to unlocking more freedoms, opening up our economy, and allowing us to do the things we have missed so dearly.

“Over the last year, our society has faced a challenge unlike any other, and these have been the most difficult of times for everyone. I am so proud of how far we have come, together. Today, in marking one million people vaccinated, we can all look forward to a better future.

“Administering these vaccines involves a huge logistical effort, and I want to once again thank all those involved in the programme.”
