The Government is currently looking to draw up plans so that fully vaccinated people will be able to dine indoors in the next couple of weeks. This is despite a lot of young hospitality staff remaining unvaccinated.

Should the government look at prioritising those in the hospitality staff when it comes to vaccines?

Andrea spoke with Harry McCann in Wexford who believes young people have been let down once again, Brigid Purcell, People Before Profit by-election candidate, Julia Marciniak, Unite Tourism and Hospitality Co-Ordinator and Adele in Wexford rang into the show as she was very frustrated as to how hospitality workers are being treated. 

We also continued the conversation later in the show, by chatting to other callers who wanted to raise their points.
