The Chief Medical Officer confirms that Cayman Islands Government is committed to ensuring the availability of COVID-19 vaccinations for children between the ages of five and 12 years old.
However, the vaccination programme is overseen by the UK Government, which has donated and transported both the Pfizer-BioNTech and AstraZeneca vaccines for use in the Cayman Islands.
As such, the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines in this age group must first be approved by the Medicines Healthcare products and Regulatory Agency of the UK. Following this, the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office would need to send the special paediatric formulations to our Islands.
Government is working closely with the Governor’s Office towards this end.
