Vaccination Programme and Covid-19: Statements
The NIAC report was published yesterday and is online now. If the Deputy goes to the national immunisation advisory committee's website, she can look at it. It issued quite a detail report with a lot of references. It is well worth taking a look. It goes through many of the issues we have discussed here today. With regard to Erasmus students, the issue is much broader. The reality is that mandatory hotel quarantine is very serious. The epidemiological situation right across Europe is very concerning. The Deputy will be aware that France has just introduced significant lockdown measures. Other countries are doing the same. Mandatory hotel quarantining is one of the measures being taken to protect against variants coming in.
