WHO top scientist sees no evidence healthy children and adolescents need COVID booster

Jan 18 (Reuters) – The World Health Organization’s chief scientist said on Tuesday that there is currently no evidence that healthy children and adolescents need booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

In a media briefing, Soumya Swaminathan said that although there appears to be some decline in immunity to the contagious omicron variant vaccine over time, more research is needed to determine who needs booster doses. .
