The Danish National Board of Health has recommended that children aged between five and 11 should be able to get vaccinated against Covid-19, becoming the first EU nation to make the move.

On Friday, Helene Probst, Deputy Director of the National Board of Health, told the press that the decision came at a time of concern for the Nordic nation, as Covid cases continue to rise.
"We have seen a worrying infection in the hospitals, and that the number of hospitalizations has risen to over 400," she stated.

I am really happy that we now have an approval for children aged between five and 11 years old. We need that. We are still in the midst of an epidemic and a historic health crisis.
The board's recommendation comes after the European Medicines Agency (EMA) recommended on Thursday that the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine could be safely used in children from the age of five.

Probst stated that while children in the age group were not at risk of developing severe Covid-19, vaccinating them could help protect family and friends.
"We want to break those chains of infection with the vaccination," she added.



Comment: The mRNA vaccine for children is much more dangerous that the virus itself. Latest studies demonstrated that children could not asymptomatically spread the virus. SARS-CoV-2 causes a very mild upper respiratory tract infection in children, and last year, more children died of influenza than COVID-19.

Dr. Michael Yeadon, former Pfizer vice president, warns children are 50 times more likely to be killed by the covid vaccines than the virus itself.

All Covid-19 variants are harmless for the children.


The National Board of Health is yet to set a specific target for how many 5- to 11-year-olds should be vaccinated.
"But if we reach 70 percent, then it will be good," Probst told the media.
The government has created a booklet for parents, informing them about vaccinating their young children.
