Children’s covid vaccine: Which countries administer the coronavirus vaccine?
COVID vaccinations have now been administered to over two billion individuals globally, but which countries are now administering the vaccine to children?
Coronavirus vaccinations have been administered to 47 million people in the United Kingdom so far. The question of whether or not children under the age of 16 would receive the vaccine has sparked heated debate. According to recent reports, members of the government’s expert group on immunization remain largely opposed to extending Covid vaccinations to younger teenagers.
Many governments around the world have disagreed on whether or not children should be vaccinated.
So far, 89 percent of the adult population in the United Kingdom has received one dosage, with 74.8 percent of the population fully vaccinated.
According to vaccination experts, all 16 and 17-year-olds in the UK will receive their first dose of the Covid vaccine in a matter of weeks.
According to the Joint Committee on Vaccine and Immunization, these children will not need parental agreement to get the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
According to a recent study, about 75% of Britons support expanding the UK’s coronavirus vaccination program to include children aged 12 and up.
Three out of four people feel youngsters above the age of 12 should be injected, according to a JL Partners poll for the Daily Mail.
The majority of respondents said parents should encourage their teenagers to get the vaccine, and 44% said the vaccine program should be expanded to cover children above the age of five.
According to the survey, which included 1,007 people in the UK aged 16 on Thursday, only 38% opposed the change.
Despite their enthusiasm for children receiving the vaccine, 65 percent of those polled were opposed to providing incentives such as free pizza to children who received the vaccine.
In many countries, children have been a low priority for vaccination because they have a low risk of being very ill with Covid.
Children who become ill with coronavirus rarely have long-term symptoms, according to King’s College London research, with most recovering in less than a week.
Many specialists, however, have maintained that children should be vaccinated because they can act as a viral reservoir, spreading it to their friends, classmates, families, and other vulnerable adults.
Some argue that if doses given to children were reallocated to vulnerable adults and health workers in developing nations, more lives would be saved. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
