A batch of 9,600 doses of BioNTech mRNA vaccine specifically for children aged between five and 11 has been delivered to Macao.

Health workers will start administering the jabs on Tuesday. Potential vaccinees can book an appointment from 10 am on Monday.

The administration of the new BioNTech mRNA vaccine for five-to-11-year-olds will be carried out at the four vaccination facilities where general BioNTech doses for over-12s are administered, namely at the Conde de São Januário Hospital Centre, the Ocean Gardens Health Centre, the Ilha Verde Health Centre, and the Macao Forum complex in Zape.

Macao has 18 regular Covid-19 vaccination facilities. All other facilities are only used for Sinopharm inoculations.
