According to the Regional Ministry of Health in a statement, “from 15:00 tomorrow, the web appointment for the vaccination of this age group will be open, which will open the entire group of children authorised to receive the COVID-19 vaccine”.
Vaccination will begin progressively this week and new appointments will be added as more children are vaccinated. Vaccination against the coronavirus in the 8-11 age group in the Region of Murcia began on 15 December.
As stipulated by the health authorities, two doses are administered eight weeks apart. After the injection, as with older children, the child should be observed for 15 minutes to detect immediate reactions. In people with a history of a severe allergic reaction, regardless of the cause, the child should be monitored for up to 30 minutes.
