Public Accounts Committee

2020 Report of the Comptroller and Auditor General and Appropriation Accounts
Vote 38 - Health

9:30 am

Mr. Robert Watt:

We have procured, I think from memory, about 25,000 doses of the antiviral drugs. It is not that expensive. I will check and we will come back with the exact details. We and other member states have pre-purchased them from Pfizer as part of the European Union deal. We will come back on exactly what the vaccine spend is to date and prospectively. It is evolving in terms of the uptake. We will also come back on the antivirals.
