The Ministry of Health will roll out the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines effective from today.

They say the new batch of 530,000 Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines which arrived into the country this month, will be available as booster doses for adults aged 18 years and above, as well as for the vaccination of children aged 12-14 years old.

It says additionally, children aged 12-14 years old who are due to receive their second dose are encouraged to get vaccinated for maximum protection against COVID-19.

The Ministry further says as a result of the recent adverse weather conditions, there will be delays in the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines in the areas affected by heavy rain and floods.

Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong says 83,908 individuals have so far received booster doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
