We know that these vaccines work they do prevent the disease.
But we also know that children
healthy children ages 12 to 15 very seldom get seriously ill over COVID.
12 至 15 歲的健康兒童很少因 COVID 而患上重病
And in that situation, the fact that there are side effects,
albeit very rare, which we don’t really understand at this point,
means that there is a risk that we could be doing more harm than good with this vaccine.
And in that situation, even though it’s not very likely.
We really are cautious to advise that all children should receive the vaccine.
It’s really mostly to do with the fact
that the risks of COVID are so small in healthy children.
健康兒童感染 COVID 的風險非常小
But perhaps most importantly of all,
we’ve been able to get really up to date information
from pediatric cardiologists in the United States
who are managing children who experienced this Myocarditis side effect,
admittedly small numbers
but still some early concerns
that this might be a problem in the longer term.
And that very up to date information is why
we’ve kept to our line actually over the last two months
that we should be cautious about this.
