Earlier on, Singapore approved the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children aged between 12 and 15 years. As her two eldest kids Brayden and Ashton are already above 12 years, the actress shared that they were vaccinated. She added that they were now “eagerly awaiting their second shot this month!”
Talking about her youngest son Nathan, Zoe Tay said that he was jealous of his two elder brothers since he’s too young to receive the vaccination. She wrote that Nathan “can’t wait for his turn now” to get his own first jab of the Covid-19 vaccine.
