It comes after health officials said children ages five to 11 can start taking COVID-19 vaccine doses from this week in Berlin.
Children in this age group can have their first dose of Pfizer / BioNTech injected in Berlin’s mass vaccination centers, in schools, doctor’s offices and even in the city’s natural history museum.
The news comes days after Germany’s independent vaccination advisory body said Thursday it recommends vaccination for children aged 5 to 11 with previous illnesses or who are in close contact with vulnerable people.
Children in this age group should receive two doses of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine three to six weeks apart, the panel said.
The panel, known by the German acronym STIKO, added that infants with no previous illnesses can be vaccinated if there is an “individual wish” – one step less than recommending that all children in this age group receive the vaccination.
Senior government officials have pushed for the vaccine to be made available to younger children across the country.
“For many 5- to 11-year-old children and their families this is a great relief,” said the new family minister Anne Spiegel of the Funke media group in an interview published on Sunday.
Other federal states, including North Rhine-Westphalia, Hamburg and Bavaria, will also be making recordings for the age group 5-11 available in the coming days.
