President Joe Biden’s medical advisor, Anthony Fauci, indicated that it is likely that elementary school students will be immunized early next year and that high school students will receive doses in 2021.
You U.S likely to start vaccinating kids against Covid-19 in early 2022, said Anthony Fauci. The president’s infectious disease specialist and medical advisor Joe Biden said on Sunday, 28, that studies are already underway on the safety of immunizers among this population. “If you project realistically, when we can get enough data to say that elementary school children can be vaccinated, I think that would be, at the very least, at the end of the year, and most likely in the first quarter of 2022,” he said in interview with the North American television station CBS. Fauci also pointed out that teenagers high school students will probably be able to receive the vaccine against Covid-19 before the beginning of the next school year, which in the United States begins between the months of August and September.
Anthony Fauci’s prediction, which would contribute to a safe return to face-to-face education, is also related to the approval of the single dose vaccine developed by Johnson & Johnson on Saturday, 27, which should speed up the immunization campaign. Before that, they were already testing the vaccines of Pfizer–BioNTech and yes Modern. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, currently one in five American adults has already received at least the first dose of the vaccine.
