As of July 16, the WHO Immunization Strategy Advisory Group reviewed Pfizer’s vaccination data for children over 12 years of age. Current research shows that children are generally less likely to become seriously ill and die after infection, but children with underlying diseases are at higher risk of serious illness. WHO recommends that when the community transmission rate is high or there are group cases, children and adolescents with basic health conditions should be included in the second stage of vaccine promotion.
