A total of 7,102 students ages 15 to 17 have been vaccinated over the last two days.

This was revealed by Permanent Secretary for Health and Medical Services Dr James Fong in his daily update tonight.

Dr Fong said the 15 to 17-year old vaccination program has been ongoing with much of the teething issues mitigated today.

 

“A task force has been established to look at ensuring adequate and appropriate oversight over the implementation and maintenance of all measures needed to make the school environment as safe as possible,” he said.

“As emphasized in other announcements, the vaccination coverage rate in children will not determine the school starting dates.

“The children vaccination rate also does not impact our current social relaxation and/or economic recovery program.”
