The unvaccinated students from ages 5-11 can attend classes when the schools start on June 13, 2022.
This was announced by the COVID-19 Oversight Committee in a radio talk-back show, Sunday.
Earlier the oversight committee have encouraged unvaccinated students ages 5-11 to get their vaccine for protection.
However, Doctor Elizabeth Rodgers of the Ministry of Health and Medical Service on the radio talk-back show yesterday said that unvaccinated students will attend school as there will be a vaccination rollout for them.
“Schools are planning vaccination roll out in schools when school starts.
“So, for students who are not vaccinated will have time to get their vaccine in their respective schools during that time,” she said.
Secretary to the Prime Minister Office, Dr Jimmie Rodgers adds that the vaccine will be available in the country when the primary school starts.
“We are hoping to get the vaccine available in the country when primary schools start, and in the first week for instance, the vaccination team in Honiara should start,” he said.
Rodgers said by the first week of school vaccination rollout should start and hopefully to cover the whole country before the end of the school year.
