Health Canada approves Pfizer COVID vaccine for children 5 to 11 years of age. Here are the reasons why vaccination is important. It is a half truth that children are unaffected by the disease. Many weather the storm well but others, regardless of medical history, do not. We recommend vaccinations for many infectious disease that have a lesser chance of cause death and morbidity than COVID because the end result is can be devastating for children and their families.
Deciding to vaccinate your children against COVID should follow the same logic and reasoning used to decide to vaccinate against other diseases.
