Local GP backs major investment in flu prevention

A North West based GP is backing the government decision to invest up to 24 million euro on preparing for a possible flu pandemic.


Ministers have backed a deal that will give Ireland access to 1.8 million extra vaccines.


The initial cost is 5 million euro – and the full 24 million will only be spent if a flu pandemic is declared.


Donegal GP and Chairman of the GP Committee of the IMO says it’s money well spent after the Covid crisis.
