“It is frustrating to see that a 103 year-old person still hasn’t received their first Covid-19 vaccine and the HSE are calling for people 40 years younger to register for their vaccine.”

That’s according to Roscommon based Independent Deputy Denis Naughten who says up to 1,100 appointments by the National Ambulance Service for people over the age of 70 are unaccounted for.

Deputy Naughten says these unaccounted-for vaccination appointments are now clearly the reason why 1,000 people awaiting their first vaccine dose did not receive it by last Sunday week, as planned by the HSE, and instead this will now be delayed by one month.

He has been telling Midwest Radio’s Michael D McAndrew that he raised this issue in the Dail with the Taoiseach four weeks ago.
