Head of the Polish government Mateusz Morawiecki is convinced that the low level of vaccination increases the risk of a fourth wave of coronavirus in Poland.
"If all major pharmaceutical agencies, especially European and, particularly, Polish, confirm that children younger than 12 can be vaccinated, we will allow this possibility," Morawiecki said.
As it was reported earlier, Switzerland and Sweden health authorities approved minors' vaccinations "in order to break this chain of infections, so that there will be no fourth wave".
It was also reported that Israel began to vaccinate adolescents aged 12 to 15 years in early June. It also became known that China approved the use of the CoronaVac anti-coronavirus drug for children from three years old.
In Ukraine, the Ministry of Healthcare is preparing to vaccinate adolescents against the Covid-19 infection.
