The first Leitrim nursing home resident to receive Covid vaccine says there is now light at end of the tunnel.

The first Leitrim nursing home resident to receive the Covid vaccine this week says there is now light at end of the tunnel.

88-year-old Eddie McCartin from Drumgownagh became the first person in residential services in Leitrim to be vaccinated against COVID-19 at a nursing home in Mohill
this week.

Almost all nursing homes across the region have now received their first vaccine doses – with the second round to provide full immunity expected to be delivered in early February.

Eddie says while being indoors has been tough- he hopes it won’t be for much longer
