In hindsight, we did not get much out of vaccinating the children, Director of Danish Ministry of Health admits

We have become wiser, and we would not do the same today, says Søren Brostrøm.


With the knowledge we have today, we did not get much out of having children vaccinated against coronavirus last year.


This is acknowledged by the director of the National Board of Health, Søren Brostrøm, on Wednesday, where the future corona strategy has been presented.


From mid-July last year, the first 12-15-year-old children in Denmark were invited to receive a vaccine against coronavirus. In November, the 5-11-year-olds were also recommended to be vaccinated against the virus.

At the time, it was said that the vaccinations were not predominantly for the children's own sake, but to ensure epidemic control in Denmark.

When Søren Brostrøm hosted 'Go' evening Live 'on TV 2 on Wednesday night, he was asked if it was a mistake to vaccinate children.
