Roscommon/ Galway deputy Denis Naughten has sought clarity from the Minister for Health on claims that up to one fifth (20%) of staff in long stay homes for older people will not be vaccinated with their colleagues and nursing home residents due to a failure by the HSE to deliver adequate supplies of vaccine.

 “Staff are now being informed that they will have to await for a further delivery of vaccine because not enough was delivered to long stay hospitals to cover all members of staff, the deputy claims . 

 “While the number of vaccines delivered will cover all residents, I’ve been informed by staff that there has been a 20% shortfall in the number of vaccines delivered for the those caring for vulnerable older people”.

He is now seeking urgent clarification from the Minister for Health as to how this happened and what measures are being taken to address the situation.
