SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Dec. 15 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The President of the Government of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, has opened the door this Wednesday for children between 5 and 11 years old to be vaccinated against Covid-19 in schools after Christmas.
In response to a question from ASG in the control session, it has indicated that vaccination will start with immunosuppressed children and those of older age in health centers and ‘vacunadromes’ and has been “convinced” that parents will vaccinate their children en masse to be safer and help cut the transmission of the virus.
Torres has highlighted that the Canary Islands is the fifteenth autonomous community in cumulative incidence in the group between 5 and 11 years old and at the same time, it is the one with the highest incidence in those age groups, so he hopes that vaccination will serve to overcome the sixth wave.
ASG spokesperson, Casimiro Curbelo, has commented that until the third dose of the vaccine is consolidated and the immunization of children “there are risks” so he has asked for an effort from parents and that they are also vaccinated in the centers educational. “Do not make the mistake, it is the best, they are safe and effective vaccines,” he indicated.
