Non Frontline Workers Using HSE Staff Portal To Secure Vaccine

It’s being claimed that an online HSE system for staff vaccination has been widely abused by non health care staff, to jump the queue to receive the Covid-19 vaccine.

According to the Irish Daily Mail, the system is not robust in checking identifications.

The report says there is evidence of people who are claiming to be health staff,  supplying false information to get the vaccine. It also claims the HSE does not know the exact occupation of 1 in four of those who have been given the first shot, as a frontline healthcare worker.
