Not only as a doctor and health minister but also as a father, Wolfgang Mückstein welcomed the approval of the Pfizer vaccine for children from the age of five by the EMA on Thursday. “Vaccination for children is safe,” he said. For this reason, children in Austria will also be vaccinated against Corona in the future, which is already the case in Vienna. As for the reasons for the decision, Mückstein stated that children can also be particularly affected by Long-Covid. He therefore urges parents to find out about the possibility from paediatricians. Experts recommend that children should avoid exercise and physical exertion after vaccination.
