COVID-19 vaccination for young children belonging to clinical risk groups

The Health Council recommends COVID-19 vaccination for children between 5 and 11 years of age who are at higher risk of developing severe symptoms following an infection with SARS-CoV-2. This concerns children with certain medical conditions who are under the care of a paediatrician. The Council has informed the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport accordingly in an advisory report.
