CHILDREN AND THE COVID VACCINATION
There are many questions around covid-19 vaccinations for children. The vaccine has been rolled out for children 12 years and older and recently for children between 5-11 years of age. Pfizer has also said they are preparing trials for children less than 5 years of age.
As the arguments for and against vaccinating children heat up we have tried to offer information from credible medical sources arguing both for and against vaccination children for covid-19.

This list is developing and is not exhaustive. Ultimately parents will have to make up their own minds on this issue.
