What we expect is to follow this plan that we have and with the quantities of vaccines that continue to arrive, we will be able to open vaccination for those under 18 in the last week of August”, said Marta Temido, in an interview with TVI.

According to the government official, vaccination of children under 18 will only be possible if vaccination plans are met. “Right now, we know what our context is. We have a vaccine that already has a clear indication for people over 16 years old, we have a vaccination plan that goes up to 18 years old and we remain committed to protecting those who are most vulnerable to serious disease and hospitalisation”, he said, noting that the beginning of the school year is not in question.
