In a statement issued, a spokesman for the government said parents or guardians can make online reservations for their children aged three to 11 who had already received two doses of the Sinovac vaccine for three months.
Those aged 60 or above who have received three doses of the Sinovac or the BioNTech vaccine can also make online reservations starting from 8 am Thursday to receive the fourth vaccine dose at least three months after their last dose
Meanwhile, those aged 60 or above who have received three doses of the Sinovac or the BioNTech vaccine can also make online reservations starting from 8 am Thursday to receive the fourth vaccine dose at least three months after their last dose.
The government’s expert committees last week recommended three doses of the Sinovac jab for children aged three to 11, with the first two doses given 28 days apart, followed by a third dose at least three months later. Children aged five to 11 are also recommended to receive two doses of the BioNTech vaccine at least eight weeks apart.
The government said children aged 3 to 11 must bring along a consent form signed by their parents on the date of vaccination and must be accompanied by their parents or guardians in person when receiving the vaccination.
