LONDON, Sept 3 (Reuters) – Britain’s vaccine advisers said they were not recommending the vaccination of all 12- to 15-year-olds against COVID-19, preferring a precautionary approach in healthy children due to a rare side effect of heart inflammation.
The advice could see Britain pursue a different approach to the United States, Israel and some European countries, which have rolled out vaccinations to children more broadly.
The article goes on to state the following:
However a final decision has not been taken, as the British government said it would consult medical advisers to look at other factors, such as disruption to schools.
BBC further reports that the chief medical officers will be asked to “consider the wider implications of extending vaccinations to younger pupils.”
Meanwhile “government sources believe vaccinating younger children could reduce disruption in schools and help keep infection rates down as winter approaches,” BBC reports.
A final decision is expected over the next few days.
Deputy Chair of the JCVI, Professor Anthony Harnden, explains the committee’s decision to not recommend COVID vaccines for healthy children aged between 12 and 15.
