One-fifth aged 12 to 15 now vaccinated against Covid in CR

Around one-fifth of children aged 12 to 15, over 100,000 in total, have now been vaccinated against Covid-19 in the Czech Republic, according to data from the Ministry of Health. It and the Ministry of Education said in June that vaccinated children would not need to be tested for the virus when they return to school in September.

Around a quarter of those vaccinated have already received two jabs. Vaccines became available to those in this age group at the start of July.
