COVID-19 vaccination plan for schools

March 31st, 2022

The Ministry of Health says it is still trying to source COVID-19 vaccines for children and once successful, the plan is to take the programme into the schools.

This from Chief Medical Officer, Dr. The Most Honourable, Kenneth George, during yesterday’s COVID-19 press conference.

He says children who are 12 years and over will be offered the inoculation but their parents have to consent to them receiving it.

Outside of COVID-19, Dr. George is concerned that there’s been a fall off in the number of children getting vaccinated against the traditional diseases.
