The British government today went to the British Health Service Center Announced With the agreement of experts, be ready to vaccinate Covid-19 children 12 to 15 years from next month.
The first dose of the vaccine is recommended for people aged 16, 17 and children 12 to 15 years old with special conditions and people in this age group who live with people with weak immune systems.
Britain has not yet followed the model of most countries for vaccination and has not vaccinated children under 16 years of age. For example, the White House announced yesterday that half of children between the ages of 12 and 17 had received at least the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Most children do not have any mild signs or symptoms of the disease, but they can still be carriers. The British Minister of Health has announced the readiness for vaccination of children and said that if the experts agree, they will start vaccination as soon as possible.
Specialists are currently investigating the benefits and harms of these vaccines. However, legislators from the British Ministry of Health have stated that the Pfizer-Biontec and Moderna vaccines are safe and effective for 12- to 17-year-olds.
If approved by experts, the UK Health Service will contract with Covid-19 vaccine manufacturers and train people to vaccinate children.
The UK is embarking on this trend while in many other countries the vaccination process is slow and governments do not have a regular vaccination plan. In Iran, this trend was moderate to those born in 1347, but now, after several weeks, a new age group for vaccination of Covid-19 has not been announced by the Ministry of Health.
Officials announced in July that they would produce more than 50 million doses of Cow-Barakat vaccine by the end of September this year, and would begin vaccination with the domestically produced vaccine. This is despite the fact that during this period it was found that half of the vaccines in the Barakat production line were destroyed while filling the vials.
Recently, the official death toll from coronary heart disease in Iran has reached an average of 600 people per day, and in general, to date, nearly 5 million people in Iran have been infected with the disease and 105,901 people have lost their lives.
