Kuwait to vaccinate children aged 5 to 12 soon

Children aged five to 11 will soon be vaccinated in Kuwait, the Ministry of Health announced yesterday.

With Pfizer-BioNtech announcing they are close to obtaining a licence for the use of their vaccine for those in this age group, the ministry said it will vaccinate children in a few weeks from now as soon as the company obtains a licence for use in the US and Europe.

The dosage for this group will be much lower when compared to those above 12 years, Al Rai newspaper said.

This will eventually lead to the resumption of in-person schooling from the second semester onward in light of the continued downward curve of the pandemic.
