July 2nd, 2021
MDI welcomes Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly’s statement on Morning Ireland, RTE 1, that he wants to prioritise the vaccination of 12 to 15-year-olds with underlying conditions. The Minister said the National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) is looking at this. Following the approval by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) of the Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine, MDI wrote to Minister Donnelly and the Chair of NIAC, Professor Karina Butler, in early June asking for the prioritisation of 12 to 15-year-olds with neuromuscular conditions.
