Children aged 12 to 15 are now being offered the Covid vaccine in Gibraltar, following the recent delivery of 8,000 doses.

The Pfizer BioNtech arrived sooner than expected, so the campaign has begun slightly earlier than planned.

Take-up was high and nearly 750 school pupils were vaccinated on the first day. 4,000 people in Gibraltar have now also received their booster jab.
