Do children become eligible for the vaccination only once they have their birthday and turn 5, or are they eligible as long as they turn 5 within the year? So in January will any child born in 2017 be eligible?

Given that South Africa is well ahead of Canada in terms of omicron numbers and they are not seeing deaths or many hosptializations with only 31 percent of the population fully vaccinated, why is there a push to have boosters

In terms of contact tracing, how far back should agencies go if someone has tested positive for COVID?
Sean McGrady (he/him)

Regarding South African data, there is some misinformation out there about their hospitalization/death increases. Please see the Ontario Science Table's last deck, slides 6 and 7 for data on South Africa. https://covid19-sciencetable.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/Update-on-COVID-19-Projections_English_2021.12.16.pdf"South Africa is cited as evidence of Omicron’s lower severity, buthospitalizations, ICU occupancy, and in-hospital deaths are risingdespite a younger population with some immunity"
