There are calls for the board of the Coombe Hospital to account for its vaccine roll-out.

If comes after a report found a consultant doctor brought home doses for family members.

An independent inquiry looked into an incident that occurred on January 8th at the maternity hospital.

It found that 16 relatives of eight different staff members received a dose, without the knowledge of the HSE.

The report says the vaccine clinic team was tired when they decided what to do - and considered it a "mitigating" factor.

Labour Leader Finds Consultant's Actions "Repulsive"

Meanwhile, Labour leader Alan Kelly says exhaustion is "no excuse at all" for taking home vaccines.

"For a consultant to walk out the door with vaccines for their own personal use - thinking they could do that - it goes way beyond exhaustion, that's a premeditated decision," he said.

The TD for Tipperary described the decision made by the individual in question as "just repulsive".
