Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health
HSE Winter Plan: HSE
With all due respect, the HSE's calculation was based on increasing the uptake of the vaccine among the at-risk groups. There is no doubt that this is an important objective. However, does this situation now mean that the order put in by the HSE earlier in the year for 1.4 million doses will not cater for anybody outside those at-risk groups? Was that a mistake? Is the message to people outside the at-risk groups now that they should not get the vaccine?
