In which countries are the Covid-19 vaccine available for children? The US government is working on plans to provide vaccines to children between the ages of 5 and 11, pending approval from the country’s drug watchdog. The shot identified for this purpose was developed by Pfizer/BioNTech, which is already authorized for emergency use in children aged 12 to 15 in the country.
Pfizer said last month that a Phase 2/3 trial showed its CoVID-19 vaccine was safe and produced a “strong” antibody reaction in children aged 5 to 11. The two dosage methods he tested on children used 10 micrograms of food.
Effects of vaccines on children
The World Health Organization (WHO) says mild effects of Covid 19 infection have been observed in children and adolescents compared to adults. So as long as they are not part of a group that is most at risk of severe Covid 19, they will be safe. There is an urgent need to vaccinate older people and health workers.
The WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) has approved the Pfizer / BioNTech mRNA vaccine for use in people 12 years of age or older. The World Health Organization (WHO) says the vaccine could be given to high-risk children between the ages of 12 and 15, along with other priority groups.
The BBC added that although vaccination for children is expected to keep cases low. But this does not necessarily prevent the spread of Code-19 in schools. In addition, the problem is in adults as well as children that they do not go to the crowd.
Currently, economic and social activities are being revived in the country. However, vaccination for children under 18 has not yet begun. It takes time for the country to bring the vaccine to children. In this regard, experts point to both data and supply as important factors that should be considered before they happen.
The ZyCoV-D vaccine does not require injection and was approved for emergency use in August, which was also tested on adolescents 12 years of age and older, but has not yet been made available on the market.
Dr. Gagandeep Kang, a vaccine expert, and professor at Christian Medical College (Vellore), Wellcome Trust Research Laboratory, said there were many questions that needed to be answered before India could start vaccinating children and that I should explain why we want to vaccinate children and which vaccine should be given, there should also be research.
What is activated and inactivated vaccine?
“Should we use the inactivated virus vaccine or should we wait for the mRNA vaccine? There are many questions that we need to think about and answer appropriately. We do not yet know enough about the effectiveness of these vaccines. At the moment, we don’t have enough data to make informed decisions.
