For decades, children have been vaccinated against numerous diseases such as measles, mumps, polio, diphtheria, rotavirus, multiple types of meningitis and whooping cough. All of these vaccines are given when children are only a few weeks old. What about the Covid-19 vaccine?
The USA has already vaccinated 600,000 children between the ages of 12 and 15. It expects to have enough safety data to vaccinate even younger children next year. The UK plans to vaccinate children with the first dose by the end of July. However, adults have yet to agree on vaccination of children.
