Dr Mike Ryan calls on Ireland to share vaccines once vulnerable have been protected

WHO's Dr Mike Ryan was awarded the Trócaire Romero Award on Wednesday, in recognition of his efforts to protect vulnerable communities from Covid-19.

Upon receiving the Trócaire Romero Award, Dr Mike Ryan called on developed countries like Ireland to share vaccines with those "way down the queue".

Dr Mike Ryan said: "The north doesn't need to share all of its vaccine, it needs to share some of its vaccine."

He called on developed countries to "begin to share a small slice of the cake", once they've vaccinated their most vulnerable.
