There is considerable doubt among parents whether to vaccinate children as young as five years of age with the Covid-19 vaccine. Most people think there is no need for this vaccine.
It has been several months since the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made vaccinations available for children.
Despite these initiatives, most parents have kept their children away from such vaccinations so far. Only four to five percent of children have received this vaccine so far.
Recent studies and population estimates from the American Academy of Pediatrics suggest that vaccination rates among children are extremely low.
On the other hand, the vaccination rate among children aged 5 to 11 years has gradually increased and now stands at 18 percent, the agency said.
The Director of Public Health of the South Karelian Department of Health and Environmental Control reported that their vaccination rate is close to two percent of the children in the state.
Interviews with many doctors, health workers and parents reveal that they are still hesitant about vaccinating their children.
Most parents still do not realize the need to vaccinate children against this virus. That's why they haven't come forward yet.
Despite this, the health authorities of every state are doing their best to ensure the safety of vaccines and timely delivery of vaccines to children.
According to some scientists, all of these vaccines that are available for children have not been released to the market after adequate testing.
So all health workers and parents are waiting for the right news. They are sure to think about vaccinating their children only after being completely reassured
