COVID-19 vaccination under 6 years of age only for children at high medical risk

The Health Council of the Netherlands recommends that only children aged 6 months to 6 years with a serious medical condition should be offered vaccination against COVID-19. These children are at higher risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19. Vaccination can provide temporary protection against this. For children under 6 years of age with no medical risk, vaccination is not necessary.
