Written answers (Question to Foreign)

I can confirm to the Deputy that my Department is in ongoing contact with the Department of Health in relation to the provision of advice for our citizens abroad in the context of COVID-19.

There are currently no plans to arrange vaccines for Irish citizens abroad and our advice to our citizens overseas is to follow the guidelines of the public health authorities in the region or country in which they are located.
