Vaccine registration is opening for 25 to 20-year-olds from tomorrow.
It means everyone in that age group will be able to register to receive a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine in the coming weeks.
Health Minister Stephen Donnelly announced the move, just a week after registration opened to 30 to 34-year-olds.

Anyone aged 18-30 can currently book an appointment with a pharmacy for a one-shot Janssen vaccine - although supplies remain limited.
Health officials continue to recommend that everyone under 50 get one of the two mRNA vaccines - Pfizer or Moderna.
However, those aged under 34 are also able to 'opt in' for an AstraZeneca vaccine, meaning they may be vaccinated sooner.
