Error in what the minister said, the Prime Minister confirms that the Covid vaccine will not be late
Irish Prime Minister Micheál Martin has rejected Justice Helen McEntee’s remarks that the country’s vaccine vaccine will be delayed.
Justice Helen McEntee’s remark that the Covid vaccine will not be available to everyone this year.
This caused panic among the people that the delivery of the Covid vaccine in Ireland would be delayed. Subsequently, the Prime Minister himself came to the scene and clarified that the Minister had spoken wrongly about the distribution of the vaccine.
A spokesman for the Prime Minister said the minister had spoken incorrectly and there was no change in the government’s decision on vaccine distribution.
He said the vaccine would be available to everyone before the end of the summer.
Labor leader Alan Kelly, meanwhile, said politicians should be wary of words about vaccination, and that anything confusing could panic people.
