A village in Co Kerry banded together during the week, after an unexpected vaccine delivery.
Residents in Sneem received 300 doses of the Moderna vaccine - but the elderly population aged 70+ to be inoculated there was only 250.
Dr Hernan Ganzo told The Hard Shoulder they put a plan in place to get everyone vaccinated.
"We received the vaccines from the HSE, they sent us 300 vaccines, and the [number] of our patients is 250.
Dr Ganzo paid tribute to his "great team" - his secretary and nurse - but said other people came to help as well.
He explained that a retired doctor who lives in the village and his wife, who is also a GP, assisted in the operation.
"I have 250 patients over 70 and because of the way that Moderna is delivered, they only can send batches of 100 vaccines at a time.
"So when they sent me the vaccines they decided, instead of sending me 200 and left 50 people out, they sent me 300."
Dr Ganzo said there was a sense of relief.
"I was fortunate to receive this vaccine, and I think they sent me that vaccine because I'm a small practice, and I'm alone here.
"I have a sense of relief because I was worried, I have a very old population here.
"The sensation that all the people who got the vaccine at that time was that - a relief - to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
"This is great.
"I'm sorry for the people who haven't been vaccinated yet - but we will be there soon", he said.
