A county councillor has condemned the appearance of anti-vaccine graffiti on the walls of the Primary Care Centre in Castlebar.
The graffiti, which appeared overnight and was painted over earlier this morning, has been described as vandalism by councillor Ger Deere, who said it was upsetting for patients arriving at the Primary Care Centre this morning to have to read.
“Everyone is entitled to their views but this is certainly not the way to express them,” said Cllr Deere.
“The rollout of the vaccine has given hope to millions and has been proven medically to fight the dreaded pandemic that has turned our world upside down and we all hope that with vaccines we will get back to some normal quality of life.
“I condemn those engaged in this vandalism. It is not the way to express other views. There are plenty of other platforms to do so.”
Gardaí in Castlebar are investigating the incident but no arrests have so far been made.
