The head of the HSE says he’s anxious to see healthcare workers receive a Covid-19 booster vaccine soon.
Around 1,800 healthcare staff are out of work at present with Covid related issues.
The National Immunisation Advisory Committee has recommended over 60s receive a booster jab but not healthcare workers yet.
Paul Reid admits he's "really anxious" for them to get a third dose "as soon as possible".
"They were vaccinated very early on in the process and I'm just really anxious we keep those levels of protection strong not just for themselves but equally for vulnerable people we support", he says.
