A 21-year-old transplant patient from Knock says he can't understand why his community has been placed seventh in the HSE vaccine priority list.
Matthew McNeive has had 25 operations since birth including a Kidney transplant in 2010.
He has to attend hospital three days a week for dialysis.
He is a third year student at the Technological University Dublin studying Clinical Measurement Science, and was due to start placement in Beaumont Hospital last October.
However, the HSE deemed Matthew too high risk due to Covid-19 so his placement has been deferred.
The frustrating point for Matthew is that some students on his course who began their placements have already had their vaccines.
The Knock native says Dialysis patients are regarded as being extremely high risk in terms of Covid-19 and to put them way down the list seems contradictory.
