I find the outrage at the CEO of the Beacon giving spare vaccines to school teachers fascinating - where was all this outrage when the Master of the Coombe gave their excess vaccines to staff’s family members - including his own two sons!
Excess is a hilarious term there. The hse (as competent as they are) should have a process in place for ensuring over subscription for the numbers of vaccines so this doesn't occur. If the vaccines were due to expire someone has f%~ked up and yes it makes sense to use the remainder rather than waste it. It is not correct that one person uses them for personal or political gain or other. So there is a failure at two levels there and both should be reprimanded. I've not been dipping into the news very often for the past few weeks and wasn't aware of the Coombe incident tbh, but the CEO should go.
No they shouldn't go to much if any effort to ensure that 20 odd vaccines a day get used strictly accoding to protocol. Quite apart from the fact they don't have the IT systems to do the job efficiently they really shouldn't bother that much. It's less than 1% of total vaccines. THis is a by the numbers exercise, just get the vaccines out there asap and if you lose 5% in this fashion that's a cost of doing business. Personally I'd go higher to like 10% but whatever. As Mike Ryan of the WHo said at the outset, don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good.
They don't even have the capacity to cross check the info applicants for various cohorts give(and why would they?). GF is a social worker and all her co-workers applied and some used different criteria ("because they weren't sure of what to put in") so some are in a week, others in a month and more in 2 months. And I see the Dail Heil has a story of thousands of HCWs skipping the que
Every check they have to do is just an excuse to only do 600 vaccines on a Sunday. Whack them out there asap target 90-95% accuracy and jobs a good'un
I'm sanguine about all this because my mam got vaccinated today(2nd dose in 4 weeks) and the GFs will be done next week. SO that's a lot of my risk dealt with. And I figure we'll be swimming in vaccines in a month so who cares(plenty of people will care and they will all be crushing bores). I'm so tired of the hysteria.
Actually on my mams vaccine. Shee ended up being booked twice. Her firend booked her the first time(and she forgot) and then the GP sent her a text message telling her to book. SO I booked again. GPs site said not to call about the vaccine because they had no access to the list and their lines were being blocked by people calling about the vaccine to the detriment of patients. There's a free slot at 240pm in the Helix on SUnday though she did say it to them today.
