Covid infections among children under 10 are increasing, even with cases of serious disease. Annamaria Staiano, president of the Italian Society of Pediatrics (Sip), highlights this at Adnkronos Salute, commenting on Ema’s recommendation on the anti-Covid vaccine for children under 12. “In recent weeks, covid infections have been increasing among the under 10s, even with serious illness and some cases in intensive care. This increase in the incidence must be a strong alarm bell for vaccinating children now that AIFA’s ok will come after the EMA’s green light for the vaccine for age 5 -11 years. It is true that in most cases the virus manifests itself with mild forms, but severe ones cannot be excluded “, he says. During the pandemic “in Italy we recorded 36 pediatric deaths and almost 300 cases of multisystem inflammatory syndrome – adds Staiano – For this I appeal to parents: when we have the vaccine doses, do not delay and bring your children to get vaccinated. Let’s protect them and also help fragile children “.
