Norway opens Covid jabs to 5-11 year-olds

Baku, January 15, AZERTAC

Norway said Friday it would open Covid vaccinations to 5-11 year-olds on a voluntary basis but stopped short of issuing an official recommendation.

Parents can choose to have children aged between 5 and 11 vaccinated on a voluntary basis, but the Norwegian government has not issued an official recommendation for parents to vaccinated children in this age group.

In addition, children aged 12 to 15, who have until now been offered a single dose of the vaccine, may now receive a second dose if their parents wish, the health ministry said.

Almost 90 percent of Norway’s adult population has received at least two doses of a Covid vaccine.
