Clinically vulnerable children and the Coronavirus vaccine

Ross_Scope Posts: 7,487 Scope online community team
We’ve had a request in from a well-known newspaper regarding clinically extremely vulnerable (CEV) children and the vaccine.

They are hearing concerns of a lack of a plan for CEV children, worries over disabled children missing school indefinitely, and even some calls for GPs to provide the vaccine at their discretion.

Is this a concern for you? If so, what are your specific concerns?

    I have only one view on the vaccine and children (all children that is) and that is they should all have the vaccine, not sometime whenever but as a priority after all children are the future and from where I'm sitting they have had a pretty rough deal during this pandemic.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    I'm a bit on the fence here I agree that cev children should be offered the vaccine 

    As for other children I think more research is required first
