Belgium – Vaccination against coronavirus approved for children aged 5 to 11 years


The Belgian Interministerial Health Conference has given the green light to the vaccination against Covid-19 in children aged 5 to 11, the Belgian press reports today.

Priority will be given to children with underlying diseases who are at higher risk of becoming seriously ill than Covid-19, the health ministers decided. This non-mandatory vaccination will be given with the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine. The Supreme Health Council had also issued a favorable opinion last week.

Earlier this month, Health Minister Frans Vadenbruke announced that the first delivery of 336,000 doses of vaccine to children under 12 was expected in Belgium before the end of the year.
