Like the Tánaiste and I am sure many other Deputies, I have experienced an escalation in my office over the last couple of weeks of people seeking clarity on when they will get their booster vaccines. A 68-year-old gentleman was on the telephone to me this morning. He is going through chemotherapy and he was seeking clarity on when he will get his booster. His consultant oncologist could not tell him, nor could his GP or the HSE vaccine line. He is not seeking to skip any queues; nobody was. He is just seeking clarity. It is fair that one of those three, if not all three, should have clarity as to when this individual, as well as many others, will receive their vaccines. I am interested in hearing the Tánaiste's thoughts on how that system is working.
