Based on the decision of the Immunization Council, it is now possible to vaccinate children aged 12-15 with Pfizer, Deputy Minister of Health Tamar Gabunia told journalists after the meeting of the Council.
“The council supported the vaccination process in the age group of 12 to 15 years, with two doses of Pfizer vaccine, with the decision and consent of a parent, which is a necessary requirement in case of medical intervention for a minor.
“Accordingly, children between the ages of 12 and 15 can go to vaccination centers and get a dose of Pfizer,” Gabunia added.
She noted that the rate of infection in children is not high, but their vaccination is important.
Until now, only citizens over 16 could be vaccinated with Pfizer in Georgia.
