Laois TDs unanimous in relation to Covid-19 vaccine

All three of Laois’s sitting TDs say that they will take the Covid-19 vaccine when it becomes available.

LaoisToday contacted Sean Fleming, Charlie Flanagan and Brian Stanley to ascertain their views on the various vaccines that are due to become available in early 2021.

Fianna Fail’s Fleming and Sinn Fein’s Stanley both confirmed they would take it while Fine Gael’s Flanagan pointed to his Tweet on December 9th where he also confirmed.

He said: “I’m eagerly awaiting Covid 19 vaccination. Mass Vaccination across communities will beat Covid.”

Meanwhile, the CEO of the HSE, Paul Reid, has urged people to keep Christmas visits to ‘absolute minimum’ as case numbers begin to rise again.

And Proffessor Martin Cormican, HSE lead on infection control, says we should only meet people ”you trust with your life” indoors this Christmas.

Prof Cormican said: “If you plan to visit and older or medically vulnerable person over Christmas your preparation starts now

“If you take risks with your health over next ten days, do them a favour and stay away.
