COLOMBO: Sri Lanka's health authorities on Wednesday said that COVID-19 vaccines would begin to be administered on children between ages 12 to 19 with disabilities and chronic illness from Sept. 24.

Pharmaceutical Production, Supply and Regulation State Minister Channa Jayasumana said authorities would administer the Pfizer vaccines on these children.

Jayasumana said the vaccination drive will commence from the Lady Ridgeway Hospital for Children (LRH) in the capital Colombo and will be carried out from other hospitals in the urban Western Province.

It will then be extended countrywide on Oct. 4.

Sri Lanka is presntly facing a rapid rise in COVID-19 infections, local health workers said that the rise in patients in recent months was from the Delta variant with the capital Colombo being the epicenter.

A mass-scale vaccination program is underway in the country with over 51 percent of the population vaccinated to date.
