From today, children aged between 12 – 15 to start receiving invitation to take vaccine

From today, those aged between 12 and 15 years will start receiving the invitation to take the vaccine against Covid-19.

The Deputy PM and Health Minister Chris Fearne announced this on social media this morning.

They will be given Pfizer after last May the European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved this vaccine for those aged between 12 – 15 in the EU.

The EMA found that those in this age group who took the vaccine had no negative effects on their health which is of any concern.
