    If T&T gets a batch of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines from the United States, this will be set aside for children of secondary school age.

    Earlier this week during an interview with Dr Bhoe Tewarie, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley reportedly revealed that T&T had signed a confidentiality agreement with the US, even as it is still negotiating for a gift of COVID-19 vaccines.

    During a media briefing today, Dr Rowley pointed out that the Pfizer shot is the only one currently approved by the WHO for children over the age of 12.

    And, with Government aiming to reopen schools in September, he says it makes sense that secondary school children are given priority for this particular jab.

    The PM also issued a warning to adults waiting for Pfizer shots that they will have to continue waiting, as he gave an update on the status of talks with the US.
