Jinan begins COVID-19 vaccination for adolescents aged 15 to 17

Jinan, capital of East China's Shandong province, started a COVID-19 vaccination campaign for adolescents aged between 15 and 17 on Aug 1.

"Jinan currently has 240,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines suitable for minors, enough to fully meet the needs of minors in the city," local officials said.

Parents or guardians are required to read consent forms thoroughly and sign their informed consent before vaccination, and accompany their children on-site while they are being vaccinated.

The contraindications of COVID-19 vaccination for people aged 15-17 are the same as those for adults. In the 24 hours after being vaccinated, people should keep the skin of the inoculation area clean and avoid scratching it.
