COVID-19 vaccination of children aged 5 to 11 only for medically at-risk groups

The Health Council of the Netherlands is recommending that children aged 5 to 11 are only offered a vaccine against COVID-19 if they have a serious medical condition. These children are at a higher risk of becoming seriously ill with COVID-19. Vaccination may offer temporary protection against this.
