Department of Health
517. To ask the Minister for Health the position regarding vaccinations in secondary schools given many have now been scheduled in HSE vaccination centres on an individual basis; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [49365/21]
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.
