Health officials in the Thai capital Bangkok arranged for about 1,500 pupils aged 12-18 to get Pfizer-BioNTech vaccinations on September 21, 2021. Bangkok Governor Aswin Kwanmuang has set a goal of getting vaccines into the arms of 70 per cent of the city’s estimated over 1 million students aged 12 to 18 by November, when there are plans to reopen schools closed since December 2020. From October 4 onwards, the Thai government planned to vaccinate students aged 12 to 18 nationwide. In Hong Kong, UK, France and some other countries, children as young as 12 have been offered shots. US President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci also said Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines are likely to be approved for children ages 5 to 11 in the US before Halloween.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
