Earlier today following a request from the HSE the Irish Air Corps delivered the first consigment of Covid-19 vaccines to the Aran Islands, Co. Galway and to Arranmore Island in Co Donegal.

Three shipments of the Moderna Vaccine were flown ​from Casement Aerodrome, Baldonnel to Inishmore and Inisheer Islands in Co Galway and Arranmore Island, Co Donegal by two EC-135 helicopters. On arrival the vaccines were handed over to GP’s to be administered to the island’s residents.

This operation marks a significant milestone in the vaccine rollout and highlights Óglaigh na hÉireann’s continued support to the HSE in the fight against Covid-19
