208. To ask the Minister for Health the Covid-19 safety protocols that are still in place to protect people with disabilities; if he plans to introduce measures specifically to ensure the safety of people with disabilities; and if his Department will consider contributing to the additional expenses incurred by people with disabilities for protective measures throughout the pandemic.

As this question regards operational matters, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the Deputy directly, as soon as possible.

In respect of the Deputy’s query regarding funding, the Department of Health has supported the disability sector throughout the pandemic with additional funding to help support service delivery , including an additional €10m in once-off COVID-19 funding in Budget 2022.
