The World Health Organization (WHO) has now relaxed its vaccination recommendations against the coronavirus.

Accordingly, in this new phase of the pandemic, only high-risk groups should receive an additional vaccination twelve months after their last booster, and not, as previously, healthy children and adolescents, for example. According to the WHO, this applies to older and younger people with significant risk factors.

Corona: relaxation of vaccination recommendations.
The organization also said Tuesday that vaccination protection beyond the basic immunization of two shots and a booster is no longer generally recommended for people at “intermediate risk.” It said that healthy children and adolescents are a “low priority” group. Therefore, the WHO is calling on states to consider illnesses before recommending vaccination to these people. “The revised roadmap reiterates the importance of vaccinating those at risk for severe disease progression,” said Hanna Nohynek, chair of the WHO Expert Group on Immunization, which issued the recommendations.

Different countries currently have different approaches to vaccinating their populations. Wealthy countries such as the United Kingdom and Canada, for example, are offering booster vaccinations to at-risk groups this spring, just six months after their last immunization. According to the WHO, this is an option for particularly high-risk subgroups, depending on their age and immune deficiencies.
