Britain’s drugs regulation agency has considered the use of the “Moderna” vaccine for children aged 12-17.
Based on this, the Joint Committee on Vaccines and Immunization (JCVI) should inform the government about the following actions. Next, a decision will be made as to whether children of a particular age group will be able to receive vaccinations.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency announced on its Twitter page:
Also, the Ministry of Health has asked The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization for an official recommendation on whether adolescents 12 to 17 years old should be given Moderna.
The JCVI expresses the opinion that young people will have 80 percent protection from hospitalization due to Covid after primary vaccination, as they respond better to injections than older age groups.
