Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: Statements (6 May 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: This is one of the good news stories of the vaccine programme and the considerable reduction in cases of Covid-19 in healthcare settings, including maternity hospitals. The maternity hospitals are making local calls themselves. As the Deputy is aware, there are different rates of disease around the country and hospitals are faced with different local epidemiological situations. I will, of...

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: Statements (6 May 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: There was a recent scare of Covid-positive cases in Dealgan House Nursing Home. All necessary protocols kicked in and the worries were allayed. I commend everyone involved. However, I want to again bring up the issue of Dealgan nursing home and the tragic outbreak last year that resulted in the loss of the lives of 22 residents. The Minister and the Minister of State, Deputy Butler, met...

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: Statements (6 May 2021)

Mary Butler: I am very aware that listening to families can bring great learnings to many situations. While we are still dealing with daily case numbers, we are continuing to look at options that may be available to the State whereby it can listen to the voices of those who have lost a loved one.

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: Statements (6 May 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I accept that. I have a couple of questions for the Minister and the Minister of State about information that is required from the HSE. I accept that, in the near future, they will have to go back to the families on the issue of the mechanism that will provide the affected families with the answers that are required.

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: Statements (6 May 2021)

Matt Carthy: I am still getting calls, as I am sure other Deputies are, from constituents who are housebound and awaiting vaccination. These are people within older age categories. The questions they ask relate to who contacts them in the first place, when they will be contacted and the process that will be involved. I understand the ambulance service provides the vaccinations. I would like if the...

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: Statements (6 May 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: I will ask the Minister of State, Deputy Butler, to answer the question about people who are housebound. I fully agree with the Deputy on testing and tracing. It has been, and remains, an essential part of our response to Covid and it has increased in the past number of days and weeks. In the seven days to 3 May, 124,000 tests were done. Some 4.5 million tests have been completed to...

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: Statements (6 May 2021)

David Cullinane: I am sharing time with a number of colleagues. Is the Government going to support the TRIPS Agreement waiver appeal that has been submitted by India and South Africa to the World Trade Organization? As the Minister knows, this would involve a temporary waiving of certain intellectual property rights. If it is implemented, it will bolster supply of Covid vaccines, which we all want to see,...

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: Statements (6 May 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: I thank the Deputy for his question. I want to say at the outset that the objective, which we all share, is global distribution of the vaccine. That is important for two reasons, as we have discussed here previously. One is that it is ethical and absolutely the right thing to do and, second, it is in our interests. There is no point in Ireland or, indeed, the western world being...

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: Statements (6 May 2021)

David Cullinane: I appreciate the response the Minister has given but my time is very limited. The question I asked is whether we are going to support, at a European level, what the Biden Administration is now supporting, which is a waiver under the TRIPS Agreement. When the matter comes up with the World Trade Organization, the European bloc will obviously have its position. Is the Irish Government going...
