The vaccination process has been in full swing ever since the corona virus vaccine was approved worldwide. Meanwhile, Oxford University in London is considering testing its Kovid-19 vaccine on children for the first time. This vaccine trial was announced on Saturday.
For this, 300 such children in the age group of six to 17 years will need to be vaccinated voluntarily. Of these, 240 children will be vaccinated by Kovid-19 and the remaining 60 will be vaccinated for meningitis.
Andrew Pollard, lead researcher at the Oxford Vaccine Trial, said that most children are not seriously ill due to Kovid-19, but it is necessary to develop immunity in them, because some children will benefit from vaccination.

Other pharmaceutical companies are also testing their vaccines on children. Pfizer’s vaccine is already being administered to people over the age of 16. It started testing on children up to 12 years of age in October 2020 itself. At the same time, Maderna started testing vaccines on children in December 2020.
