Government Says It Will Cover Cost Of Any Claims Resulting From Covid-19 Vaccinations

The State will pick up the liability for any claims resulting from COVID-19 vaccinations.

The companies producing the vaccine have been indemnified under the advanced purchase contracts signed with the European Commission.

The State Claims Agency will have responsibility for any claims and it's expected to be discussed by the expert group responsible for the roll-out of a vaccine.

The Department of Health has stressed that no vaccine will be rolled out in Ireland without European Medicines Agency authorisation and there will be ongoing monitoring of its success.
