Children over 12 year of age with chronic diseases will soon be able to receive Covid-19 vaccines in Georgia, pediatrician and National Immunisation Board member Temur Mikeladze has stated today.

With the permission of the family doctor and parent, any child with chronic diseases will be able to receive a Covid-19 vaccine in Georgia… I’m aware of several cases when  12 and 15 year old children with chronic diseases were fully-vaccinated against Covid-19.... No serious vaccine side effects have occurred so far”, said Mikeladze.

Mikeladze said children with no chronic diseases don’t need to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

The Health Ministry will officially inform the public regarding the vaccination of children in the coming future.

Vaccination against Covid-19 in Georgia is available with Pfizer, Sinopharm, Sinovac and AstraZeneca vaccines on the registration portal https://booking.moh.gov.ge.
