Marian Harkin reiterates need for Vaccine Minister

Sligo/Leitrim Independent TD, Marian Harkin, has again raised the possibility of appointing someone to oversee the rollout of the vaccination programme.

She raised the issue in the Dail where she said there is a lack of transparency and detailed planning of the rollout.

Government opposition has been pressuring them to change their approach to tackling Covid-19.

Addressing Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly, Deputy Harkin says the Covid strategy and vaccine rollout will be the ‘benchmark’ this government.
