UK Regulators have advised against universal vaccination of healthy children against COVID-19

In a statement released by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, the group advised that the risks of known harms from vaccines outweighed the benefit of vaccinating healthy 12-15 year olds.

“Given the very low risk of serious COVID-19 disease in otherwise healthy 12 to 15 year olds, considerations on the potential harms and benefits of vaccination are very finely balanced and a precautionary approach was agreed”

JCVI has left it to the UK Govt and Chief Medical Officers to consider wider societal impacts in the implementation of the advice.

This is in stark contrast to advice provided in Australia by ATAGI just last week.
