Department of Health
902. To ask the Minister for Health if technical issues in relation to the Covid-19 vaccine registration portal for health professionals have been raised with his Department; if so, the steps he has taken to correct such issues; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [13130/21]
904. To ask the Minister for Health the status of the roll-out of vaccines to front-line healthcare workers; when this is expected to be completed; and if healthcare assistants are included in this phase. [13145/21]
Frontline healthcare workers (HCWs) in direct patient contact roles will be vaccinated in Group 2 of the vaccine allocation groups. This includes HCWs working in public, private, and voluntary settings. Other HCWs, not in direct patient contact, will be vaccinated in Group 6.
As this is a service matter, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the Deputy directly, as soon as possible.
