Finally, note that while we have the Moderna vaccine’s approval for children 12 to 17 years old, kids may not get their jabs yet due to the lack of supply. The priority population generally covers medical frontliners, people with comorbidities, and essential workers.
For this reason, continue to be strict with health protocols. Don’t allow kids out unless it’s absolutely necessary, regularly disinfect surfaces and objects at home, and take steps to strengthen their immune system. When you go out of the house, practice physical distancing and wear your face mask and face shield. Finally, perform frequent handwashing.
The Philippine FDA approved the Moderna vaccine for children aged 12 to 17 years. Before this, they also allowed kids 12 to 15 to have the Pfizer-BioNtech jab. However, the lack of vaccine supply may delay vaccination in kids as the government prioritizes adults in the healthcare industry, those with comorbidities, and those who work outside their homes.
