Health Dept needs to get its act together on vaccine message

"Aontú Derry Councillor Emmet Doyle has expressed concern about contradictory messages from vaccine manufacturers and the NI Dept of Health on the efficacy of the Pfizer vaccine if there is a prolonged gap after receiving the first jab.

Cllr Doyle said: “the NI Dept of Health has been consistently using social media in the last few days to tell us that there is no evidence of the Pfizer vaccine losing protection after 21 days without the second jab, where Pfizer, the manufacturer, are saying the direct opposite and that there is no data to suggest there is any protection after 21 days.

People are already confused because of the changing nature of guidance from the Executive, and now there is this concerning element of mixed messages on the gap between both Noah’s and how protection lasts in that period.

The Department of Health needs to get its act together and clear this message up as soon as possible”.

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
