Share this:

The notice hereby informs the public of Samoa that the Ministry of Health will be administering the 2nd dose of the Pfizer Vaccine in all schools as initially scheduled, beginning on the 22nd November 2021.

This schedule was developed based on the due dates which completes the 4 weeks between the 1st and 2nd dose.  We ask that every parent or guardian should ensure that their child presents their vaccination cards on the day of their vaccination as scheduled.

All children from 12 years upwards who have completed their 1st dose are eligible for the vaccination unless they are acutely ill or have a temperature of 38C or higher. Children on medications including antibiotics and Rheumatic fever treatment can still have the vaccine.

Please inform the nurse vaccinator if your child has previously had a severe allergic reaction or currently has any allergies. Also, inform if your child has a significant medical condition or if you have any concerns.

On the Vaccination Day:

• Ensure that your child has had breakfast and is well hydrated.

• Each child should bring their vaccination card

• Wear loose clothing for easy access to the upper arm.

Finally, the Ministry of Health appreciates your support and we continue to pray for God’s overall protection upon our country and people.

For further information, please call 66694 (Public Health) or call the Ministry of Health Hotline 80064400 (Free call).

Ma le faaaloalo lava,

Leausa Tupa’i Samau.T.Dr Take Naseri
