I propose to take Questions Nos. 517 and 518 together.

The HPV vaccination programme is a schools-based immunisation programme. The roll-out of the programme is the responsibility of the Health Service Executive.

As this is a service matter, I have asked the HSE to respond to the deputy directly, as soon as possible.
