25 Mayo Nursing Homes prioritized in HSE Plan for COVID-19 vaccine roll-out

Mayo Fine Gael TD Alan Dillon has welcomed plans by the HSE to being vaccination of nursing home residents and staff in County Mayo which is due to begin on January 11 and be completed by the end of February.

Deputy Dillon said “within the coming days, the HSE will begin administering this vaccine across Ireland. Detailed plans are in place for this roll-out through the National COVID-19 Vaccination Strategy. The most vulnerable will be prioritized first and over time, these vaccines will allow us to re-open our society and economy”.

“A Guidance document issued from the HSE to nursing homes in Mayo this week noted that nursing homes will be required to accept delivery of the Covid-19 vaccine into their facility and maintain the cold chain until the arrival of the HSE Covid-19 vaccination team.”

“Nursing homes have been asked to register all residents” according to Deputy Dillon.

The Mayo TD said “vaccination teams will travel to each of the 25 HIQA older persons residential care facilities, both public and private, to administer two doses over a six-week period.  It is estimated that it will take each vaccinator 12 minutes to administer the vaccine with a target of injecting 35 vaccines per day.

“Each Residential Care Facility will be allocated a ‘day one’ (first vaccination) and ‘day 21’ (second vaccination). All residents and staff will be invited to consent in advance and then receive a vaccination on these dates wherever possible.”

“It will take three weeks to administer the first dose, and a further three to deliver the second.”

“Below is the draft schedule for vaccination teams to arrive in County Mayo at each care facility, listed by Community Health Organisation (CHO2). The exact dates are subject to change before the nationwide roll-out”.
