40 Doses Of Covid-19 Vaccine Only, For 300 Front-Line Workers At Nenagh Hospital.

Mr Jackie Cahill TD

As was previously expected a small amount of Covid-19 vaccine arrived at Nenagh Hospital today. This was fast-tracked after front-line staff voiced their sheer frustration and anger yesterday, regarding delays with the current rollout to some 300 of their frontline contact workforce.

Some 40 doses will now be administered to chosen workers within the hospital, leaving some 240 front-line workers, without being vaccinated. (Note: We understand some 20 staff who share work with Limerick University hospital had received the vaccine earlier.)
This compares unfairly with some one thousand staff at the private Beacon Hospital, who were vaccinated last week, according to HSE chief executive Mr Paul Reid.

Meanwhile, Nenagh hospital has not been given any clarification as to when these other 240 front-line staff will receive their badly needed vaccine doses.

What has been even more disrespectful of Nenagh Hospital staff, was a claim made yesterday on social media, by Tipperary TD Jackie Cahill, who stated, quote, “The Taoiseach has informed me that an initial delivery of vaccinations will be sent to Nenagh hospital tomorrow morning, for front facing staff, following representations I made to him on this matter.
I have been back in contact with the Taoiseach’s Chief of Staff, late this evening, to state that a full delivery is needed as a matter of priority and I have requested certainty on a date for this.
I am very please (I think he means ‘pleased’) to welcome this news and I thank all of those who contacted me in relation to this.”

It would appear that the Taoiseach, Mr Micheál Martin was misleading Mr Jackie Cahill, during their contact, (which hopefully was 2 metres apart). However, having heard the Taoiseach Mr Martin on Virgin Media News, it appears more likely that it was Mr Cahill who was attempting, not for the first time, to mislead his now dwindling Tipperary electorate.
