United Kingdom does not recommend massively vaccinate healthy young from 12 to 15 years

Great Britain vaccine advisors transfer that they do not recommend the massive vaccination of children from 12 to 15 years old against coronavirus, preferring to take a precautionary approach to evaluate the long-term impacts of rare cardiac inflammation.

There have been inflammation reports of the heart, known as myocarditis, in young people after vaccination with the injection of Pfizer, although the condition is usually slight. "The available evidence indicates that the benefits for individual vaccination against Vaccination against VOC-19 are scarce in people from 12 to 15 years without underlying health problems," the Committee on Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI) has pointed out.

According to this entity, Vaccines of Covid-19 would be recommended in the case of young people from 12 to 15 years with previous health conditions.

In any case, after the publication of this Recommendation, the Minister of Health, Sajid Javid, has affirmed that he will ask for the opinion of the medical authorities of the four nations that form the United Kingdom "before making a decision quickly."

In the United Kingdom, the pressure for the campaign to extend to adolescents, it grows since the beginning of the new school year in England this week has made an increase in infections, as it was seen after returning to classes in Scotland early of August.
