Parents have been urged by the Education Minister Premila Kumar to provide consent so that their children aged between 5 – 11 years old can be immunised against COVID-19.
Kumar says as seen from recent data the virus is still amongst us.
She says it is therefore very important for our children to get vaccinated to remain safe from any infection.
The Minister adds the adherence to COVID protocols and the high vaccination rate has enabled the Government to open up its borders and restart our economic recovery and it is evident that policy initiatives for addressing COVID have worked well.
Kumar further says it is imperative that we do not become complacent and take the necessary precautions for the future to ensure that our businesses, students, and other sectors of our economy do not suffer and we continue to enjoy the level of normalcy we enjoy today.
