Working in the Community, Working for the Community

imageAt 2pm today we march in Clonmel not just against the water charges but we march for change.

 

We march for the Right to:

 

– Have a health service which is fit for purpose.

 

– Education, including the restoration and increased provision of SNA’s, and an education which is truly free.

 

– Have gainful and decent employment which would provide dignity, respect and a living wage.

 

– Democratic Reform where citizens are at the heart of decision making.

 

– Housing, and to end homelessness and clearing of social housing waiting lists.

 

– Sustainable Energy, fighting climate change is not a ‘cost’ – it is a necessary strategy for human survival.

 

– Natural Resources. The assets of our nation were declared in the 1916 Proclamation as belonging to the citizens of Ireland, a Proclamation which
also pledged to cherish all the citizens of the state equally. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is one of the biggest threats to people’s ability to provide labour, social, and environmental protection and represents a proposed transfer of economic and political sovereignty from the Irish citizens to multi-national corporations.

 

– Equality, the right to equality encompasses social and economic rights which are implied and un-enumerated rights in our Constitution. These rights should be protected in legislation which will address the issues of poverty.

 

– Debt Justice, as past recklessness of financial speculation is imposing an intolerable burden on people’s future.

 

Just us at the Main Guard, Clonmel at 2pm.

What a great turn out this morning for the Centra Walk the World event to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society’s Action Breast Cancer programme. Well done to all the organisers, volunteers and indeed to everyone that took part. It was great to be involved and support this great cause.

Flu is a very serious illness – there can be potentially 1,000 flu related deaths in Ireland during a severe flu season. The HSE recommends that the following groups of at-risk people should be vaccinated against seasonal influenza:

Everyone aged 65 years and over

Anyone over six months of age with a long term illness requiring regular medical follow-up such as chronic lung disease, chronic heart disease, diabetes or those with lower immunity due to disease or treatment

Pregnant women

Residents of nursing homes and other long stay facilities

Healthcare workers

In addition to seasonal flu vaccination, some people in the at-risk groups may also need pneumococcal vaccine which is available from GPs. Pneumococcal vaccine is not required every year – most people only need to get it once, so those at risk should check with their GP.

The HSE provides the flu and pneumococcal vaccine free of charge for all those in the at-risk groups. The vaccine and consultation are free for people with a medical card or GP visit card. People who do not have a medical card or GP visit card will be charged a consultation fee.

Those aged 18 years or older in the at risk groups may attend either their GP or pharmacist for vaccination and people under 18 should go to their GP.

Visit the HSE’s dedicated immunisation website – immunisation.ie – to find out more about the annual flu vaccination and the pneumococcal vaccine.


Medical Card holders who wish to claim a refund of charges in relation to taking of Bloods may write enclosing receipts and their Name, Address, Contact Telephone Number, Medical Card Number and Expiry Date to:
