Petition Don't offer covid-19 vaccine to 5-11 year olds until phase 3 trials complete

Do not roll out covid-19 vaccines to 5-11 year olds until phase 3 trials for that age are complete & there is a clear risk benefit analysis for the individual child, based on health only. They should not be vaccinated solely for the benefit of the wider population.

More details

The Pfizer trial for 5-11 year olds was only on 4.5k children & they were followed for 2 months after the 2nd dose, therefore there is no long-term safety data. One study suggests an increased risk of myocarditis in teenage boys, though this is yet to be peer reviewed and is based on self-reporting of suspected symptoms in the US. We feel the current under-11s trial is too small to evaluate this risk. Children rarely get serious symptoms or die of COVID.
