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
