Soumya Swaminathan, WHO chief scientist, said on January 18 that there is no evidence that healthy children & adolescents need three doses of COVID-19
"There is currently no evidence that healthy children or adolescents need booster shots. There is no evidence at all," she stressed.

Ms. Swaminathan said the World Health Organization's (WHO) top expert group will meet later this week to consider how countries should give their people booster shots.

"The aim is to protect the most vulnerable, who are most at risk of severe illness and death. These are the elderly, the immunocompromised with underlying conditions, and healthcare workers. economy," she said.

The WHO statement comes as many countries have begun to administer a 3-dose injection to children .

Israel has deployed booster vaccines for children under 12 years of age. Meanwhile, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) earlier this month approved the third dose of Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for children 12 to 15 years old.

Last week, Germany became the latest country to allow children aged 12 to 17 to receive a booster shot. Hungary has also made a similar decision.
