Question

To ask the Minister for Education whether enrichment teachers at tuition centres and after-school care centres can be considered for vaccination priority in future vaccination exercises when COVID-19 vaccination boosters are needed.

Response

1. MOH is currently reviewing the emerging international and local data on COVID-19 booster vaccination.

2. Should booster shots be recommended to sustain a high level of protection among our population, MOH will determine how these shots are made available based on public health considerations and availability of vaccine supply. If prioritisation is required, MOE will work with MOH to determine how to prioritise eligible groups in the education sector.
