Pfizer is an American multinational pharmaceutical corporation.
The National Immunisation Advisory Committee (Niac) has approved the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for Covid-19 in children aged five to 11. It advised that the children be given the vaccine in a two-dose schedule three weeks apart. So 480,000 primary school children will now be offered the vaccine via their parents in the coming weeks.
As we know, Ireland has performed tremendously well when it comes to our vaccination campaign. We now have 100pc of the over-70s fully vaccinated. The figure for the 60 to 70s age group is 97pc, it’s 95pc for the 50s to 60s, 69pc for the 25 to 49-year-olds and a striking 40pc for the 18 to 24-year-olds, who we worried might be harder to reach. These numbers mean there would be no shortage of fully-vaccinated people for Electric Picnic were it to go ahead.
