Vaccine being given to Sligo hospital staff ‘as quickly as it arrives’

The manager of Sligo University Hospital says staff are being given the Covid vaccine as quickly as the vaccine arrives.

Grainne McCann adds that as well as hospital staff, those working in the community services area are also being vaccinated.

The first vaccines arrived to the hospital last week, with more delivered on Monday last.

Vaccinations are continuing this week and Grainne McCann says they are doing it as fast as they get the vaccine.
