The Newry and Armagh MLA said, “The shortage in the availability of the flu vaccine is deeply concerning.

 

 

“It is particularly concerning that these shortages have led to the suspension of the flu vaccination programme for those eligible under 65 years of age.

“Some of these people are extremely vulnerable and it is vital they have access to the vaccination.”

 

 

The Sinn Féin MLA continued, “There has been increased demand this year which makes the shortage all the more worrying.

“It is essential people are protected, particularly older and vulnerable people as well as key workers.

 

 

“This shortage comes at a time when plans are being prepared for mass COVID-19 testing and hopefully a programme of mass vaccination.

“So it is imperative that there is the capacity to ensure delivery.”
