The Ministry of Health would like to inform the general public that the booster dose rollout for children between 5-11 years has begun from 19th September, 2022. The school-going children are being vaccinated in the schools, while nuns and monks are vaccinated in their respective Nunnery, Shedra or Dratshang. Others who are not enrolled in schools are being vaccinated in the nearest health facilities. If anyone left without receiving a vaccine, they must receive the first dose during this campaign and need to receive the second dose after 8 weeks.

Therefore, the Ministry of Health urges the general public to get the COVID-19 booster jab to avert hospital admission and reduce severity with the opening of borders (point of entry) from 23rd September, 2022.
