Families of Pfizer staff to be offered Covid-19 vaccine in Ireland

Family members of Pfizer staff in Ireland are to be offered their Covid-19 vaccine.

The 4,000 workers across the company’s five sites were informed of the move yesterday.

A spokesperson confirmed the move this evening, saying it will not impact the national supplies to be delivered by the company as part of the Government’s national vaccine roll-out.

It is planned that “immediate” family and household members of staff will be offered the doses.

This include parents, spouse, grandparents and children who are over 16.

The spokesperson said it is not yet known how many people will be vaccinated under the move but said it would be in the thousands.
