Officials within the Ministry of Education, Sports and Creative Industries are encouraging parents/guardian to inoculate their children with the COVID-19 vaccine approved for them.
The Pfizer BioNTech vaccine was placed into circulation in Antigua and Barbuda on Tuesday and people 12 years and older are eligible for the shot, barring health complications, for which a doctor should be consulted.
Health officials indicate the vaccine will add an extra layer of protection for children as they prepare to begin the new academic year on 13th September, 2021.
Interested parents and guardians can pre-register for the vaccine by calling the following numbers:
788-8299, 780-8461, 736-8299
The Pfizer vaccine is available at the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment’s vaccination site at the Multi-Purpose Cultural and Exhibition Centre, Perry Bay.
