Lauterbach Stiko should reconsider recommendation for corona vaccination for children
The SPD health politician Karl Lauterbach has asked the Standing Vaccination Commission (Stiko) to reconsider its restricted recommendation for corona vaccinations for children.
“In Great Britain there are already many children with Covid in the clinic.
The Standing Vaccination Commission argues that Covid is harmless to children.
In my opinion, this does not apply to the Delta variant *, ”Lauterbach told the
Stiko recommends the corona vaccination for children and adolescents from the age of twelve only with certain previous illnesses, such as obesity, diabetes and chronic lung diseases.
However, all children and adolescents from the age of twelve can be vaccinated against corona after consulting a doctor.
“The information from Stiko always refers to old variants,” said Lauterbach.
Infecting children with the Delta variant * is too risky.
Continuing alternating classes is also no solution.
Children and adolescents generally develop less severe forms of Covid-19 than older people.
But they can also become infected and can pass the virus on.
Their immunization thus helps contain the pandemic.
