Children aged 5-11 years can also be registered for vaccination

The Ministry of Health of the Republic of Lithuania has announced that residents of the country can already register their children aged 5-11 for vaccination.

A child can be registered:

ATTENTION: at least one of the parents (adoptive parents), guardians or caregivers will have to come to the vaccination site with the child and present their and the child’s identity documents there. In this case, arrival to the site will be considered as proof of consent to vaccination – i.e. a separate certificate of consent will not be required.

According to the recommendations of the European Medicines Agency, children of this age will receive a smaller volume of “Comirnaty” vaccine (specifically for this age group). Just like with adults, there should be at least a 21-day pause between taking the first and the second dose of “Comirnaty” vaccine.

It is important to note that children aged 12 and older can get vaccinated by not only “Comirnaty”, but also with “Spikevax” vaccine. In the first case – i.e. when a child receives “Comirnaty” vaccine – there should be at least a 21-day pause between taking its first and second dose. Alternatively – i.e. when a child receives “Spikevax” vaccine – there should be at least a 28-day pause between taking its first and second dose.
