British health officials say children between the ages of 12 and 15 should be vaccinated against the corona virus.
Chris Witty, the UK’s chief health officer, and his partners in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland said on Monday that children should receive one dose of the Pfizer / Bioendech vaccine. They have not yet decided on the second dose.
They will follow the recommendations of health experts
The British government has said it will follow the recommendations of health officials. The extension of the vaccine for children should be a set of tools to solve the problem of corona virus in autumn and winter. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to announce the toolkit on Tuesday.
The vaccine is not recommended for healthy children
In early September, the British Joint Vaccine and Immunization Committee said children between the ages of 12 and 15 with health problems should be given corona virus vaccines. He did not recommend vaccinating healthy children. However, he said broader social factors should be considered, such as whether children may be a source of the virus.
Some countries, such as the United States, Canada, France, and Italy, are already vaccinating children 12 and over against the corona virus.
