Children over the age of 12 and teenagers under the age of 18 are being vaccinated in 24 hospitals around the country, according to health officials. The vaccine is manufactured by Pfizer.
People suffering from chronic illnesses were the first to be immunized with the vaccine. Seven thousand three hundred sixty-four people with chronic illnesses have received their first dosage of the vaccine, according to data from the Ministry of Health and Population.
“We decided to inoculate people between the ages of 12 and 18 because the vaccine was readily available. We’ll vaccinate up to 46,000 people with the Pfizer vaccine, according to estimates “Samir Kumar Adhikari, assistant spokesperson for the Ministry of Health and Population, shared his thoughts on the matter.
“Because there is a limited supply of vaccines, they are being distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to receive the immunization, people must present their birth certificates as proof of their age at the vaccination centers.”
Adhikari went on to say more. In the future, he predicted that more children and teenagers will get immunized once there were more vaccinations available.
