Hong Kong to vaccinate three-year-olds

HONG KONG (AP) – Hong Kong plans to offer COVID-19 vaccines to children as young as three as infections rage through the semi-autonomous Chinese city.

The announcement on late Sunday came ahead of another surge in cases. The city reported a record 2,071 new cases on Monday, with that number expected to double the next day with more than 4,500 preliminary positives identified. Hong Kong schools extended a suspension of in-class teaching for two weeks to March 6.
