Top WHO Doctor Says Healthy Kids, Teens Shouldn’t Get Boosted Against COVID-19, Contradicting CDC

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) top doctor said Tuesday that children and teenagers don’t need to get booster shots of COVID-19 vaccines.

organization’s chief scientist, Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, said that the main purposeof boosters is to protect society’s most vulnerable. She said the WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization (SAGE) will meet later this week to discuss how countries should approach their booster distribution strategies.

“The aim is to protect the most vulnerable, to protect those at highest risk of severe disease and dying. Those are our elderly populations, immunocompromised, people with underlying conditions, but also healthcare workers … there’s no evidence right now that healthy children, or healthy adolescents, need boosters. No evidence at all.”
