Parents can register kids aged 12 to 15 for COVID vaccine

Parents are now able to register their children aged between 12 and 15 years old, to take the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine through the Ministry of Public Health’s website.

37,879 vaccine doses given in a day

The Ministry of Public Health administered 37,879 COVID-19 vaccine doses yesterday, taking the total doses given so far in Qatar to two million, seventy three thousand, three hundred and fifty four 2,073,354.

With this, 53.2% of the eligible population has now received at least one dose of the vaccine says the Ministry of Public Health.

Pfizer & Moderna vaccines effective against Indian variants

The Pfizer and Moderna Covid vaccines should remain highly effective against two corona-virus variants first identified in India, according to new research carried out by US scientists. Although the study is considered preliminary because it has not yet been published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Senior author Nathaniel Landau said yesterday “What we found is that the vaccine’s antibodies are a little bit weaker against the variants, but not enough that we think it would have much of an effect on the protective ability of the vaccines.”
