Vaccination of Children age 5-11

Prof Damien Kenny, Consultant Paediatric Cardiologist, CHI Crumlin has provided us with his advice for members on the Covid vaccination of children aged 5-11 years:

“The Department of Cardiology at CHI Crumlin is in agreement with the position of both the HSE and the faculty of Paediatrics through the Royal College of Physicians supporting vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 in children aged 5-11 years. Thankfully to date the health impact of either infection with SARS-CoV-2, or of the vaccination in young children with congenital heart disease, has been minimal.

The published science appears to favour the benefit of vaccination over the risk of infection in general in this age group.”
