Holohan says people should get vaxxed to repay our public healthcare workers

He’s been accused of being ‘smug’, ‘arrogant’ and even ‘angry’ by those who oppose him, now Ireland’s CMO has declared that people should get vaxxed to repay all the hard work that our public healthcare workers have done since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.

The Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan has once again urged the public to get their Covid-19 vaccine.

In a statement Dr Holohan urged the public to continue to practice public health measures and take their opportunity when a Covid-19 vaccine is made available to them.

Holohan also said that we owe our public healthcare workers who are exhausted and we can do that by following measures and getting vaccinated.

In the statement Holohan said: “We have to continue to drive up vaccination rates as high as possible. The higher we go the better the protection we have and the sooner we’ll be able to ease more of the economic and social restrictions that still remain in place.”

“Walk-in vaccination centres are opening across the country, anyone over 16 years of age can register for a COVID-19 vaccine. Encourage your friends and family to ensure they get reliable information about the vaccines available here and to get vaccinated as soon as possible.”

“For our exhausted healthcare workers, the winter months ahead mean flu, other respiratory infection admissions alongside the backlog of scheduled and unscheduled care that has been disrupted due to COVID-19. We owe it to them to continue to maintain the basic personal public health protections; manage your contacts, keep distance, wash/sanitise hands regularly, cough/sneeze etiquette, avoid crowds, wear masks indoors and in crowded settings. If you experience COVID-19 symptoms, isolate and get tested.”
