    Date25/05/22
    DescriptionHUDDERSFIELD, United Kingdom — Coronavirus vaccinations for children between five and 11 are something parents have been calling for since the initial vaccine rollout. While those shots are now available in the United States, other countries like the United Kingdom are taking a much slower approach. Now, a researcher from the University of Huddersfield is explaining why parents may actually want to hold off on vaccinating their young children against COVID-19.

    The new study argues that rolling out a mass immunization program for children between five and 11 years-old will not provide the best outcomes for children in terms of both effectiveness and safety.
