Highlights from Moncrieff
Jan 12, 2021 There was relief and emotion as 200 residents today received the Covid 19 vaccine at St Mary's Hospital in the Phoenix Park Dublin and up to 600 residents and staff will receive it over the next 3 days. Eamonn Hughes is the first person to receive the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in St Mary’s Hospital, Phoenix Park. Eamonn Hughes, a 75 year-old man, originally from Cavan and lived in Meath for 40 years was delighted. Eamonn got the vaccine today alongside healthcare workers who were also vaccinated. Henry McKean captured the relief and emotion and spoke to the staff on the grounds and through a window 2 metres apart behind PPE. St Mary's Hospital was hit hard by the pandemic and lost many residents to Covid 19 in April 2020.
