The second wave of corona had badly affected the elderly as well as children and after the warning of the third wave, the subject expert committee of DCGI recommended a trial of covaccine on children on 12 May. Bharat Biotech also started trials of covaccine on children in June. But it is yet to get the final approval. At the same time, vaccination of children has started after trials in different countries of the world.

Currently, the vaccine is being given to children in these countries.

In the US, the Pfizer vaccine has started to be administered to children over the age of 12 from May. By next year, there may be vaccination for children below the age of 12 as well.

On 23 July, the European Union approved Moderna’s vaccine for children. After which the children of 12 to 17 years of age will be given the Moderna vaccine.

On July 19, England approved the introduction of the Pfizer vaccine to children up to the age of 12. However, at present only children with morbidity are being given priority in the vaccine.

Israel started vaccination of children up to 16 years of age in January. In June, the vaccine was started for children up to 12 years of age.

It is a bit difficult to say when it will start in India. In such a situation, keep children’s immunity strong, only then they will be saved from corona and other dangerous infections like this.

Keep children’s immunity strong like this

abstinence from antibiotics

Avoid giving antibiotics unless absolutely necessary. Even though their effect is very fast, but it is not right to give it when there is a slight deterioration in health, because they kill harmful bacteria as well as beneficial bacteria for the body at times. So before giving, please consult your doctor.

keep active

Be it young, old or child, everyone can stay fit through exercise. So do yoga, exercise yourself, as well as engage children in it. Apart from this, let them play outside as well. This will keep them healthy both physically and mentally.

adopt healthy habits

As you already know how important it is to wear a mask and keep washing hands at this time, tell them the importance of it. Washing hands before and after eating, after using the toilet, lift should be included in their habits.

plenty of sleep

Getting enough sleep is as important as studying, playing and eating. Because this also increases immunity. So pay attention to the activities of children, do not engage in anything that can disturb sleep.

healthy diet

Feeding fried and junk food to children is not as much trouble as fruits and vegetables, but it is not difficult to feed these things by adding a little test and twist. These things will help in building their immunity.
