90.2% of the adult target population is now fully vaccinated while 97.1% have received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
24, 137 children between 15 to 17 years old have received two doses.
Permanent Secretary for Health Doctor James Fong says the vaccination rate among children aged 15 to 17 continues to progress at a reassuring rate.
He says it is reassuring to see that more than 10,500 doses of Pfizer have been deployed over 6 days despite the many cold chain complexities involved in the Pfizer deployment.
Doctor Fong adds whilst the demand for Pfizer deployment in children has been extremely encouraging and they applaud the enthusiasm of parents to get their children protected, they ask that the public be patient.
He says they have deliberately brought in our Pfizer stocks in small batches to ensure they stay within our ultra-cold chain capacity as they learn to adjust to the Pfizer requirements and ensure that the changes they make are sustainable enough to ensure ongoing access to Pfizer for all our children
Doctor Fong confirms that there has also been the limited deployment of Moderna booster doses to all adults over 60 years, to those under 60 years with significant morbidity and those under 60 in the frontline.
