The World Health Organization has opposed the third "booster" vaccine against COVID-19 and a ban on school attendance by children and adolescents who have not been vaccinated.
"Vaccination of children or adolescents should not be a requirement for reopening schools or attending schools. Adults who work in schools are a priority group to be vaccinated. Children and adolescents should absolutely not be restricted from attending school based on their vaccination status," Kate O’Brien, the WHO’s director of immunization, vaccines and biologicals, said, CNBC reports.
The organization representative added that opening schools, except in the most difficult circumstances, is an essential part of the health and well-being of children and adolescents.
She also said that the organization does not recommend doing the so-called booster vaccinations, additional vaccinations against COVID-19.
WHO motivated this by the fact that at the moment there is not enough scientific data on their efficacy.
