In the 15th update to the official immunization recommendations for Corona, the German Immunization Committee (STIKO) recommends that children aged 5-11 with background illnesses receive a Pfizer mRNA vaccine at a two-dose dose, due to the increased chance of serious illness.

The committee also recommends vaccination for children aged 5-11 who are in the environment of other people who are at high risk for a serious illness and cannot vaccinate themselves or there is a reasonable suspicion that the vaccine did not give them adequate protection.

In addition, the committee decided that children aged 5-11 without background illnesses are allowed to be vaccinated according to their personal request and that of the parents or their guardian after receiving medical advice.
