Italy will begin vaccinating children against COVID-19

Italy is expected to start giving the COVID19 vaccine to children aged 5 to 11 this month after the Italian pharmaceutical agency gave the green light for the Pfizer vaccine to be used in this age group.

Younger children should receive one-third of the dose that adults receive.


They will have two doses, three weeks apart. The IAAF, which gave the green light after the European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved a COVID vaccine for this age group, said the vaccine “shows a high level of effectiveness and has no warning signals about Safety level has not been marked at this time.” Enjoyed this post?

According to Health Minister Andrea Costa, the goal is to start getting COVID vaccinations for children aged 5 to 11 before Christmas.

Matteo Salvini’s right-wing Lega party has said that children of this age should not be forced to get a COVID vaccine, saying that “mothers and fathers should decide.”

Patrizia Popoli, chair of the AIFA scientific and technical committee, rejected the argument that there would not be enough data to be able to approve a COVID vaccine for these children.


“The data we have on the COVID vaccine is enough for it to be extended to children,” Popoli told Radio Anch’io.

” COVID in children is not always bland. For example, there is multisystem inflammatory syndrome, which can be severe. 6 out of every 1,000 children (with COVID) are hospitalized. There’s a risk”.
