Director of Nursing at Killarney Community Hospitals Máire Flynn describes the sense of relief as vaccinations began there on Thursday, with 95-year-old John Cremin from Knocknagree the first resident to be vaccinated.
She praised the team of vaccinators on site, saying: “It’s a wonderful opportunity for us, it’s a wonderful opportunity as nurses to be able to give the vaccine. We’re proud of our staff here on site. All we needed was our own staff trained up as peer vaccinators - I’m very proud of them.”
