The committee overseeing vaccination against Covid-19 in the UK announced on Friday (September 3) that its campaigns will not include healthy children between the ages of 12 and 15; Contrary to many Western countries, and despite fears of the repercussions of returning to school,.
In its opinion, the committee stated that “the prove available indicate that the individual health benefits of Covid-19 vaccination are low in those between the ages of 12 and 15 who do not have underlying health conditions that put them at risk of serious infection. “
He added that the potential risks of vaccination are “even low”, but “they can be dangerous and still are in characterization phase “.
And he felt that the health benefit of expanding the universal vaccination campaign to include healthy children between the ages of 12 and 15 is “very small.” However, he recommended that the government seek further advice.
And these medical guidelines may lead Britain to take a different path from the United States, Israel and some European countries, which have offered vaccines to young people on a large scale.
After the recommendation was published, Health Minister Sajid Javid said he would seek the advice of medical authorities in the four constituent countries of the UK “before an urgent decision is taken”.
Bloomberg quoted Javid as saying Friday, “I wrote to senior doctors today asking them to consider the issue of vaccination of 12-15 year olds from a broader perspective, as proposed by the Joint Committee on Immunization and Immunization.”
“Then we’ll take in consider the advice of senior medical officials, recommended by the committee, before making a decision soon, “Javid added.
