The age group 5-14 currently has the highest incidence, but hardly any severe courses. It doesn’t fill the intensive care units. From this point of view, it is understandable that the German Stiko wants to take another look at the relationship between the benefits and risks of child vaccination. In any case, this no longer has any influence on the fourth wave. The vaccination must be about the individual child without pressure. That also means: about his wishes, his worries, his fears. The individual desire to go to school, to sports carefree, not to fear quarantine or not to endanger elderly relatives or those with other risk factors can be a reason for vaccination. For those who want it, it would be desirable if the children’s vaccine did not arrive in practices just before Christmas. The principle of solidarity in the other direction is more important: Anyone who wants children to finally get back a carefree, mask-free everyday life should get vaccinated.
