Should a Covid-19 Vaccine Be Mandatory for Kids? Health Experts Are Trying to De
« เมื่อ: กันยายน 15, 2020, 10:59:44 am »


As the race to develop a vaccine for the coronavirus that causes covid-19 continues, a crucial question is on the horizon: Should a successful vaccine be made mandatory for children entering school? In a new paper out Monday, a group of experts argue that it’s still too early to answer the question definitively, but they outline several important criteria needed for a childhood covid-19 vaccine to be deemed required.

Though a discussion about making any approved covid-19 vaccine mandatory hasn’t been front and center among public health experts yet, it’s certainly worth considering, according to Julie Swann, a systems engineer at North Carolina State University who advised the Obama administration during its rollout of a vaccination campaign for the 2009 swine flu pandemic. And there are already several mandatory vaccine programs for children entering public school in the U.S. and elsewhere.

“Logistically, it is relatively easy to mandate vaccines for children, because you can mandate it before they begin school.” said Swann, who is not affliated with this new paper, “But it will also depend on how effective the vaccine is, what the side effects are, and what the cost and benefits are.”

The new paper, published in JAMA Pediatrics, outlines nine criteria for making a covid-19 vaccine for children mandatory, based on existing guidelines as well as the authors’ own previous research. But, according to the authors, the most important details needed to know whether these criteria would be fulfilled or not are still missing.
