Tonga to roll out Covid vaccination for children aged 5 to 11

Tonga received Pfizer Covid-19 vaccination for children from New Zealand on Wednesday.

In a virtual press conference, Tei thanked the Government of New Zealand for their assistance in securing the vaccines for Tonga’s young children who have not been vaccinated so far.

“That is great news to government and the people of Tonga that we now have the vaccine for our children aged 5 to 11 years old. Vaccination rollout will start next week,” Tei stated.
