Minister for Health, Doctor Ifereimi Waqainabete while receiving the Pfizer vaccine from the New Zealand High Commission had reiterated the need for children to get vaccinated.

He says vaccination will ensure that children are safe in school and can engage in sports and other group activities.

He stresses that it will also protect children who have not yet been vaccinated and are below that age group.
