MINISTER Simon Harris has defended Ireland’s distribution of Covid-19 vaccines.
Due to issues over supplies, original targets for the rollout of the vaccines have not been met.
On RTÉ’s Today With Claire Byrne programme, Minister Harris said: “I really do believe in the months of April, May and June you’re going to see a massive ramp up.
“Government does find itself sometimes between a rock and a hard place on this issue.
“Government says in good faith, the HSE intends to vaccinate x amount of people. Then you find out of the blue that an order of vaccines doesn’t arrive at short notice.
“I personally believe that the best approach for Government to take is to continue to proactively share all of the information that we have with people.
“I think it’s better to put out the targets with the caveat that things are down to supply.”Tags:
