Over 85’s across Mayo can expect to receive their Covid-19 vaccines from today.
That’s according to retired Ballindine-based GP Dr. Ken Egan, who says the age group should get their first inoculations before the 8th of March.
The former IMO President says that most practices in the county are relatively large in size and shouldn’t be affected by delays in the rollout.
The Chairman of the Irish Co Op Association added that people should make a concerted effort to attend practices in person to receive the jab, due to the difficulties in moving the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.
Dr Ken Egan told Midwest News that medical practices receiving vaccines on Fridays will have to work through the weekend.
