The World Health Organization recommended against vaccinating children “for the moment” in its June update. “There is not yet enough evidence on the use of vaccines against COVID-19 in children to make recommendations for children to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults,” the WHO wrote. Since first published, the update has been slightly changed to claim that children who are in a high-risk group should still consider taking the vaccine. “Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults, so unless they are a part of a group at higher risk of severe COVID-19, it is less urgent to vaccinate them than older people, those with chronic health conditions and health workers,” the WHO states. “More evidence is needed on the use of the different COVID-19 vaccines in children to be able to make general recommendations on vaccinating children against COVID-19.” True North reached out to the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) to confirm its own guidance on vaccinating children.
