“We need to be prepared to vaccinate children, especially, quickly and effectively,” said Adam Finn, a member of the Joint Immunization and Immunization Committee (JCVI).
The pediatrician also stressed that “it is extremely important that education should not be disrupted in any way in the next academic year”.
Linda Bould, a public health professor at the University of Edinburgh, found that the UK’s health plans were “moving in that direction”.
“The reason for the vaccination of children is actually to improve the immunity of the group,” he emphasized in an interview with the Radio Times.
Last week, Health Minister Matt Hancock said the government had purchased an additional 60 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine to administer a “booster dose” in the fall.
The executive first considers the possibility of delivering a third dose in some areas of the population to strengthen immunity achieved with vaccines.
Nevertheless, executive studies suggest that this third dose is a pharmacist-made vaccine that differs from the first two if tests suggest that this strategy may increase safety.
