I thank everybody and wish them a happy Christmas and a restful break.

It was good to get an update earlier on the vaccines. Indeed, pharmacies in my constituency have outlined the additional support from relationship managers that they have received.

I wish to ask the Minister of State, Deputy Rabbitte, about preparation for the Omicron wave with regard to therapy staff and the provision of therapy services. In my area in Dún Laoghaire, Carmona special school, Saint Augustine's School and Ballyowen Meadows Special School are all struggling with issues generally. Now that they are going into a period of particular uncertainty, however, could the Minister of State please outline her plans to make sure therapy staff are retained, not just in these schools but across the board?
