it is essential to do everything possible to prevent them from getting sick. The vaccine offers the best chance of achieving this goal”. Can children do the vaccine? The updated version of the vaccine Comirnaty Omicron XBB 1.5 mRNA is authorized starting from 12 years of age, while Nuvaxovid XBB 1.5 can be used in children aged 6 months to 11 years with high fragility motivated by pre-existing pathologies that increase the risk of a serious form of Covid-19, (as per the Ministerial Circular). Nuvaxovid XBB 1.5, as an adjuvanted recombinant vaccine, is authorized by EMA and AIFA for administration in children between 6 months and 11 years of age in the presence of certain pathologies or conditions. And pregnant women? People who are pregnant, postpartum, or breastfeeding should also receive the anti-Covid vaccination. As specified by AIFA guidelines and EU/EMA recommendations, the available data show that the benefits of vaccination in terms of preventing Covid-19 and its consequences outweigh the risks. For this reason, the expert opinion is to preferentially offer vaccination to pregnant women, postpartum or breastfeeding women, as early as possible in the vaccination campaign.
