The Ghana Health Service has revised protocols for the administration of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
The revision includes people between ages 15 and 18 receiving the Pfizer jabs.
Previously, the Food and Drugs Authority gave permission for only people aged 18 and above to be inoculated with the vaccine.
The Service believes that children in schools are more vulnerable to the Covid-19 disease, hence their bold step to include them in the vaccination exercise.
Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma Aboagye, told the media that vaccinating children within that age range helps the country better fight the pandemic.
