Health Minister Doctor Ifereimi Waqainabete says the Pfizer vaccine is expected to be rolled out next week for children between the ages of 12 to 14 years old.

Dr Waqainabete says last night 175,500 Pfizer doses arrived in the country and they are thankful to the government of Australia, New Zealand and UNICEF for their partnership in making sure the vaccines arrive safely in the country.

He adds the Pfizer vaccine will also be used as a booster shot.

The Minister is urging those eligible citizens who are due to take their booster shot to come forward because the vaccine will protect themselves and their loved ones.
