Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney has said he expects the board of management of the Beacon Hospital to “ensure accountability” for the administering of excess Covid-19 vaccines to teachers in a private school.
He said this should be done to ensure the hospital group’s relationship with Government and the credibility of the vaccine rollout.
Controversy erupted following revelations that 20 excess vaccines were administered to teachers at St Gerard’s in Wicklow.
The children of Beacon chief executive Michael Cullen attend the school.
Cullen apologised on Friday, after details of the vaccination of the teachers emerged.
Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly asked the HSE to suspend the programme of vaccination at the hospital on Saturday.
