There is ‘outrage’ in Ballyfermot today after a vaccination drive for the over 85s was unceremoniously called off today. Patients were told the vaccines simply didn’t arrive.
Its they’re unsure about when the drive can actually take place.
In a statement, the HSE said:
“Practices scheduled for delivery this week have been contacted by the HSE and sent a confirmation email which the GP should confirm in terms of the number of vaccines required for patients aged Over 85. With this in mind, we would advise practices to arrange vaccine clinics when they have received notification of their order delivery date and confirmed to HSE the number of vaccines required.”
