WHO Says Don't Vaccinate Children

In a new move, the World Health Organization has revised its recommendations, saying “children should not be vaccinated for the moment.” The stunning announcement showed up o the WHO website June 21, 2021, flying under news media radar with the generic headline, “COVID-19 Advice for the Public: Getting Vaccinated.”

About halfway down the page in boldface type, it gave the short statement “children should not be vaccinated for the moment,” then added “There is not yet enough evidence on the use of vaccines against COVID-19 in children to make recommendations for children to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults. However, children should continue to have the recommended childhood vaccines.”
