To clarify, I do not believe it should be mandatory. I hope there will be a significant buy-in, as I am sure Dr. Glynn does.

Does it concern the witnesses that, within the body politic in Leinster House, quite a few Members stated when they were surveyed by newspapers that they would not take the vaccine? Do those who have been elected to the Dáil have a leadership role to play in standing up, getting the vaccine and encouraging their communities to get it as well?
