The regulator overseeing the registration of emergency medical technicians, paramedics and advance paramedics in Ireland has called for volunteers to be utilised during the Covid vaccine rollout.

The HSE and Department of Health have been asked to consider using volunteers from organisations including the Order of Malta and Civil Defence to administer the vaccines.

The Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC), which regulates pre-hospital emergency care and registers practitioners, told RTÉ's Morning Ireland this could help alleviate pressures on frontline responders.
