NIAC approves vaccine for 5-11 year olds

The National Immunisation Advisory Committee has approved the use of Covid-19 vaccines in children aged 5 to 11.

The advice was given to government today, and the Health Minister has accepted its recommendations.

Up to now, vaccines had only been approved for use in people aged 12 and older.

The Taoiseach recently said he expects the rollout of vaccines to those aged five to 11 to start in the new year.
