Covid-19 Vaccine & Kids: The Current Situation Explained!

Covid-19 has stirred a lot of fear and anxiety among the masses. People are seeking out solutions to protect themselves from the disease; those who haven’t contracted the disease yet are very strictly following home-based remedies, the suggestions and advices of the doctors, and those who have successfully cured are no less anxious to keep themselves protected in the future.

Since the nation has commenced its vaccination drives, now there is an air of hope among the people, and they wish to get injected with the dosages as soon as possible. Parents are observed to be eagerly waiting for Covid vaccines for kids, as there is rising news about the third phase of Covid which is expected to affect children the most. So, here’s some information laid out for them!

Symptoms you might observe in kids:

It has been found that the Covid virus will now be looking out for new host bodies as majorly the adults would be affected already or immunised by that time, and the most vulnerable group thus turns out to be the large masses of children.

So, the kids who will contract Covid-19 are possibly going to experience the following conditions; parents are advised to keep a strict check on these:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Breathlessness/shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste/smell
  • Pain in muscles, ligaments, etc.
  • Rhinorrhea: excess drainage from the nose ranging from a clear fluid to thick mucus from the nose
  • Diarrhoea

Whenever your child complains of anything like this, rush him to the doctor, he/she might have contracted the disease.

What to know about Covid-19 vaccines for children?

Like the flu vaccine, it seems really necessary to have Covid-19 vaccines for children, as it won’t just prevent them from contracting the novel virus, but will also help reduce morbidity and mortality which is being anticipated with the third wave. Covid vaccines for kids are going to help in boosting their immunity and will also enable them to attend schools and outings without any stress for parents.

So, it is advisable for parents to keep their kids indoors; until very necessary do not let them go out for any reason. Children must also wear mask and regularly sanitise under the guidance of parents, or simply wash hands and face to keep the virus away. Having healthy diets will also help them as well as the adults to gain better immunity, so enhance nutritious intake for them as well as yourself.  

Signature Hospital urges all the parents to get Covid-19 vaccines for kids as soon as it hits the ground. Stay home, stay safe!
