The vaccination of nursing home residents and staff has gotten underway today.

The inoculation process begins in Mayo on Monday next and will be concluded on the 29th of January.

Anyone in the facilities who is Covid-19 positive will have to wait four weeks after the start of symptoms before being eligible for the shot.

Sage Advocacy is calling for clarity on whether there will be a delay to the vaccination for other residents if there are confirmed cases in their care facility.

Executive Director of Sage Advocacy Sarah Lennon told Midwest News they also want to know the rationale behind staggering intervals of the vaccine doses.
