600. To ask the Minister for Health when he expects EU digital Covid certificates will be available to Irish citizens who were vaccinated in Northern Ireland; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44753/21]
Following the successful rollout of the initial implementation phase of the EU Digital COVID Certificate in Ireland, the Government is creating a specific portal to enable Irish citizens vaccinated outside of the EU, with vaccines authorised for use in Ireland, to obtain a COVID certificate valid in Ireland and across the EU.
This portal is currently being advanced on a cross departmental basis involving technical and process development, and resource management. It is expected that an announcement on the launch of this portal will be made shortly.
