Written answers (Question to Health)

The Health Service Executive is committed to providing accurate information for parents about diseases, the vaccines to prevent them and side effects to allow them to choose whether to give consent to vaccination. All the information provided to parents about vaccination is prepared from the available licensed documentation for each vaccine, the Summary of Products Characteristics (SPC) and Patient Information Leaflet (PIL).

As this PQ refers to a service issue, I have referred it to the Health Service Executive for attention and direct reply to the Deputy.
