Another European nation has decided to put an end to mRNA shots for Covid-19 for healthy young persons under the age of 18. The guidance was changed by the Swedish health authority in a notice at the end of September.
“The general recommendation for basically healthy children aged 12–17 years to vaccinate against covid-19 ends after 31 October,” the notice said in Swedish. “The reason is the very low risk of serious illness and death from covid-19 in children and young people. In the future, vaccination against Covid-19 is recommended for children in special groups.”

“During the pandemic, few children and young people have become seriously ill from covid-19,” the notice goes on. “Current knowledge and epidemiology show that the virus variants for SARS-CoV-2 cause increasingly mild symptoms for fundamentally healthy children and young people, and that immunity in the group is very high.”
“Overall, we see that the need for care as a result of Covid-19 has been low among children and young people during the pandemic, and has also decreased since the omicron virus variant began to spread,” the Swedish authority continues. “At this stage of the pandemic, we do not see a continued need for vaccination in this group. Therefore, we are removing the recommendation on general vaccination against covid-19 for ages 12 to 17, says Sören Andersson, head of unit at the Public Health Agency.”
The Swedish health authority also made it clear that physicians should evaluate the recommendation in light of the general state of health for the young person.
“The general recommendation on vaccination against Covid-19 is only removed for fundamentally healthy children in the 12-17 year age group,” the notice adds. “For those who have turned 18, the recommendation for adults applies, that you should take three doses to have basic protection against Covid-19.”
