Germany: Vaccination recommendation for 5-11 years old


The Standing Vaccination Committee (Stiko) recommends the coronavirus vaccination of children aged 5-11 years who are suffering from an underlying disease.

According to the Commission communication, the BioNTech / Pfizer vaccine should be used, and the vaccination recommendation also applies to children who come into contact with vulnerable people who have not been vaccinated.

The vaccine, which has already been approved by the European Medicines Agency, will be available for these ages from 13 December.

Regarding children aged 5-11 in general, Stiko estimates that the decision belongs to her family and her doctor.
