The UK’s medicines regulator has approved the Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine for 12 to 15-year-olds.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said the decision followed a “rigorous review” of safety and effectiveness in that age group – and that the benefits of having the COVID jab outweighed the risks.

This means that The Cayman Islands will likely follow the advise of the UK, however those age 12-15 will most likely have to wait until the next shipment of Covid-19 vaccines from the UK.

There have been 83,970 COVID-19 vaccinations given in total in the Cayman Islands.  Of these, 45,195 (70% of 65,000) have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 60% (38,775) have completed the two-dose course.
