Frustration as some GP practices wait for vaccines

A GP practice in Cavan has not yet received Covid vaccinations for its over-85 patients while another in south Donegal has had to cancel a clinic due to vaccines being unavailable.

Bayview Family Practice in Ballyshannon had planned to have a covid vaccination clinic this Thursday. However, it says patients will now be called as soon as there is a guarantee of supply.

Meanwhile, it’s been claimed a GP practice in Swanlinbar has received no vaccines so far, not even for its patients aged over-85.

Cavan Fianna Fail Councillor John Paul Feeley says two small local practices in the area have had their vaccines delivered for the over-85s but there remained another local practice that, so far, has not got any vaccines.
