AGSI Launch #VaccinateGardai Campaign

The Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors has launched a campaign to highlight the high-risk environment members are operating in during COVID-19. 

#VaccinateGardai shares personal stories of AGSI members daily on our Twitter account. @AGSI_Ireland   Please retweet our #VaccinateGardai Tweets. 

 

 

AGSI has called on Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly to fully acknowledge the full role that An Garda Síochána must play in mandatory hotel quarantining. The AGSI has called on Minister Donnelly to immediately arrange vaccinations for those members involved in that duty and across the organisation generally.

AGSI has been informed that private security and defence force members involved in hotel quarantining have, or are in the process, of being vaccinated.

General Secretary, Antoinette Cunningham says, “This leaves our members exposed in a high-risk environment where there is a serious risk to their health and safety and that is unfair and not good enough.

“Yesterday’s events at the Crowne Plaza Hotel have proven that when an issue arises with mandatory hotel quarantining An Garda Síochána must be involved as it falls on us to enforce non-compliance with the health regulations.

“We have consistently stated that the policing of COVID-19 is becoming more challenging and more dangerous for our members given the high-risk job they do, and in the absence of any vaccination plan for our members.”
