Coronavirus vaccines are nowhere, and now that availability of the vaccines is slowly unfolding, many people are wondering if it's safe for them to get one.
The first vaccines available will be rolled out to people who are at the greatest risk of catching COVID-19; examples include front-line professionals such as healthcare workers. However, the UK-based Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) listed some other groups that they don't recommend the vaccine be administered to.
The first is children under the age of 16 years, and the reason for this recommendation is because the study's that were conducted by Pfizer didn't include children 16 years and under. There is one exception, though, "The Committee advises that only those children at very high risk of exposure and serious outcomes, such as older children with severe neuro-disabilities that require residential care, should be offered vaccination." The vaccine is now currently under review and study for children.
The second group is of people are pregnant women, and for the same reason as children 16 years and under - the studies didn't include pregnant women. The third group that isn't recommended to get the vaccine is people who already have a history of serious allergic reactions. For more information on this story, check out this link here.
