Written answers (Question to Children)

The provision of health services to international protection applicants is mainstreamed in Ireland. Accordingly the administration of MMR and Hepatatis B vaccinations in the State is a matter for the HSE and the Department of Health as advised by the National Immunisation Advisory Committee. My Department has no role in this regard.
