Experts also say that even though the new infection of corona is not causing any serious problems in children, the children are definitely getting sick in the second wave of corona.
How will the third wave of corona affect the children, because amid the second wave of corona, the Supreme Court also asked the same question to the central government, which is scaring every parent today. During the hearing of the case related to Corona, Justice Chandrachud said that there are reports of many scientists that the third phase can begin. If the children are infected, how will the parents do? Will you stay in the hospital or do? What is the government’s plan? Really, let us know about this very worrying, how dangerous it will be for the children too?
According to the Times of India report, child specialists and experts in infectious diseases say that in view of the third wave of corona, the vaccination program of children should be started. If the government does not take any quick steps in this regard, the third wave of Corona can prove fatal for children. The Corona vaccine is considered to be the biggest weapon to avoid Corona at this time.
Experts also say that even though the new infection of corona is not causing any serious problems in children, the children are definitely getting sick in the second wave of corona. In the second wave, children are more infected in many cities including Mumbai, Pune than in the first wave. In such a situation, if there is a third wave, then there will be danger for children. In such a situation, there is a need for vaccination for children too and we have to take care of Kovid Appropriate Behavior as well.
Now you must be thinking that if there is no vaccine for children anywhere in the world then how will it come to India? Let us tell you that America, which is struggling with Corona, is now preparing to vaccinate 12 to 15-year-old children. The US agency Food and Drug Administration may allow the Pfizer Company’s Corona vaccine to vaccinate children over 12 years of age from next week.
According to an American government official, two doses of vaccines for children may be allowed next week or so. The FDA will convene a meeting of the Federal Vaccine Advisory Committee with an interim seal on this decision and recommend vaccination for children aged 12 to 15 years. Let us tell you that children over 16 years of age are already being vaccinated in the US.
The Pfizer company claims that 2260 children aged 12–15 years were tried. On March 31, 2021, the company said that the vaccine is 100 percent effective on children. In March, clinical trials also started on children aged 6 months to 11 years. In the first phase of the trial, the company has divided the children into three groups. Trial of children from 6 months to 2 years, 2-5 years and 5-11 years. The first dose will be decided for 5-11 year olds. Pfizer claims that the results of the trials will be found by September. Moderna company also started trials in the US, it is likely that the results will come by July.
The availability of vaccine for children in India is still in doubt. Bharat Biotech Company had sought approval for the trials in February itself, but the Drug Regulators Authority rejected it and said that first prove its effectiveness on the elders. If the vaccine is approved on children anywhere in the world, then that too will be good news for India because it is possible that those countries may also have to turn to India for vaccine production as India is the largest manufacturer of vaccines.
