Australia expands Covid-19 vaccine rollout to children
TRT World says Australia will expand its Covid-19 vaccination drive to include around one million children aged 12-15 as it secures additional supplies in a bid to step up the pace of its inoculation amid a surge in infections.
The country is scrambling to control a third wave of the coronavirus from the highly infectious Delta variant and has locked down its largest cities, Sydney and Melbourne. It is also accelerating an initially sluggish vaccine rollout.
The steady rise in infections has turned up the heat on authorities to procure emergency vaccine supplies.
