Education Ministry lays out details for vaccination of school students 12-18 years old

The Ministries of Education and Health have organised for the vaccination of students in Primary and Secondary schools, who are between the ages of 12 to 18.

These students will be administered Pfizer vaccines which were recently donated by the U.S. Government.

In a release to media on Friday, the Education Ministry stated that a link will be provided early next week for parents and guardians to indicate an interest in having their child or ward vaccinated against COVID-19.

Parents and guardians must also choose the venue, date and time of vaccination, with an appointment to be automatically generated upon completion of the online form.

Parents and guardians must accompany all minors to receive the vaccine, and must walk with a form of Identification, proof of relationship to child (where required) and an electronic birth certificate for the child to verify age.

Persons authorised by parents to accompany students must walk with a letter of authorisation signed by the parent, a copy of the parent’s proof of identification, as well as their own form of identification.

The Ministry says the link cannot be used to schedule a vaccination appointment for parents and other family members who are over 18 years and who are NOT currently attending school.
