Vaccines Hailed As "Beginning Of The End"
The government hails the coming of a COVID19 vaccine. The question is, which will be more deadly an untested vaccination or a run of the mill Winter respiratory disease?

Sinn Fein’s Eoin O Broin said there was a light at the end of the tunnel but it was “vital” to have clarity around public health and political messaging.
“As always with new medicines, there will be people out there who have concerns and who have questions,” he added.
“The public health officials, who are people best placed to answer those, need to be supported by Government in clarity of message so everyone understands when this vaccine is available and the reason why certain people get it first.”
