The Department of Health has overall responsibility for policy development on matters related to COVID-19, including the Vaccine Allocation Strategy.

In this regard, a High-Level Taskforce on COVID-19 was established to support my Department and the HSE in developing a national strategy and the implementation plan for the immunisation programme.

Operational matters, including implementation of the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination programme, is the responsibility of the HSE.
