This morning.


The vaccination was rolled out after 300 doses of the Moderna jab arrived without notice. Dr Paddy Malone, the village’s retired GP, assisted with the distribution of the vaccine on Saturday.

There were 137 persons vaccinated on Saturday and they were supervised by a retired anaesthetist and two nurses in Murphy’s Bar in the Kerry village after the jabs were delivered.

The bar premises – closed because of Covid restrictions – was opened to facilitate the vaccinations, but no drink was served.

    Just surprise innoculations of entirely random towns and villages. That does seem like the logical way to organise a controlled vaccine roll out.

        Mmm, Israel is mostly vaccinated (80% by now, I think) but still has 4,000 cases a day in a 9 million population, which would be like Ireland having 2,000 cases a day.

          mostly vaccinated (c 85%) among populated aged 70+

          it’s way less (c15%) among under 50s, which is where the new cases are being detected

    This is good for everyone though yeah?

    The more pensioners that are vaccinated the bigger the call will be for them to be let out of lockdown.

    I can’t see pensioners wanting to spend their remaining years indoors once vaccinated.

    Anecdotally, the two pensioners on my road who’ve had the vaccine seem to have a new lease on life.
    One was in my back garden the other day offering to help me with some wood cutting.

    He just strolled in around the side gate ;)

    A new man he is, he’s been hiding away for the best part of a year.

    What about the over 70’s in Dublin? Forget about the boggers in Kerry, they have Faeries to help them.
