A teenage transplant patient who attended her appointment for a Covid-19 vaccine at Beaumont Hospital was refused the jab after being told AstraZeneca was not licensed for under 18s.

The mother of the young kidney transplantee told RTÉ News how her daughter, who has been cocooning for a year, was overjoyed to receive a text message on Thursday informing her of her appointment today.

She travelled from the west of Ireland this morning but upon arrival at Beaumont Hospital in Dublin was told she could not be given the vaccine.
