Kilkenny ICU doctor calls on the unvaccinated to get the Covid-19 jab as soon as possible

He says the majority of patients in ICU due to the virus haven't had the vaccine

A Kilkenny ICU doctor is calling on people that are not yet vaccinated, to do so as soon as possible.

Dr. Alan Gaffney is the Vice President of the Intensive Care Society of Ireland.

He says that the majority of patients ending up in Intensive Care Units due to Covid complications are unvaccinated.

Dr Gaffney says it’s terrible to see people suffering when they might have been able to avoid it.
