Disgust at Sinn Féin TD’s opposition to HPV vaccine – Carey
13th February 2020 - Joe Carey TD
FINE Gael TD Joe Carey said he is disgusted by the opposition of a newly elected Sinn Féin TD to the HPV vaccine and other vaccines.
Deputy Joe Carey from Clare said Sinn Féin’s Violet-Anne Wynne must not be allowed to undo the work of those who promote or advocate the importance of getting the HPV vaccine.
“I’m the father of two young children, a girl and a boy.
“I watched one of the most inspirational and bravest people that I ever encountered, the late Laura Brennan from Ennis, spend the last moments of her life campaigning to raise awareness around the critical importance of the HPV vaccine.
“Laura did this to ensure other young people would not die.
“These comments are a really good example of Sinn Féin ignoring world health policy.
“The comments are destructive and extremely damaging as they have been made by an elected public representative from SF and they carry weight as a result.
“Our young people need to be protected against this disease and must be given the correct information to do so.
“I’m absolutely disgusted that this Sinn Féin representative would try to undo the work of Laura Brennan, her family and every club and organisation that have gotten behind the HPV vaccine campaign throughout County Clare and the whole of Ireland,” Deputy Carey added.
