"The only thing we have at the moment is vaccination. We need to understand that vaccines protect against serious illness and death. " stressed in Athens 984 and Eleftheria Koumandou, Theoklis Zaoutis, Professor of Pediatrics and Epidemiology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and a member of the Committee of Experts of the Ministry of Health.

"We need to understand that a successful long-term strategy for controlling this pandemic is to be able to vaccinate as many people as we can safely."

He added that there is impression that in children and adolescents there is no effect of the virus. "This is wrong! We need to know that it is not only an acute infection, but also a multisystemic inflammatory syndrome that can occur after the asymptomatic mild infection that affects the heart "

He mentioned for the ages 12-17 that there is an efficacy study for both the pfizer vaccine and moderna. "If there are rarer side effects when we vaccinate millions, we can see it, but these rare side effects by no means dismiss the positives and the need to vaccinate these age groups."

As Mr. Zaoutis explained, it is difficult to deny that from the 50s and 60s onwards, compulsory childhood vaccinations significantly reduced infant and child mortality. "Elimination of the paralytic form of polio could not have been achieved if the mandatory vaccination of children had not been introduced in the early 60s"
