November 8. Covid -19 will receive a new blow today when the Dominican Government, medical societies, and the Dominican Medical College decide if the Dominican Republic joins the list of countries vaccinating children between 5 and 11 years old against this virus.
This, which is the second meeting of its kind, after the first meeting was held in October, takes place weeks after the pharmaceuticals-funded US Food and Drug Administration (FDA ) approved the vaccination with Pfizer for this child-youth population.
Also, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which major pharmaceutical companies also fund, approved vaccination in children five years and older, but with the Pfizer vaccine.
Other countries are already vaccinating children up to 2 and 3 years old against COVIF-D-19, both with Sinovac, Sinopharm, Soberana 02, and now approved with Pfizer.
Such is the case of China, the United Arab Emirates, Israel, Chile, Cuba, El Salvador, Ecuador, and Colombia.
Today, the Ministry of Public Health of the Dominican Republic and the medical unions could decide when the country already has 41,727 children under 20 years of age infected by the disease, 1,469 pregnant women, and health workers arrived yesterday at 1,613.
