Are there children who should not be immunized against COVID-19?

From a medical perspective, there are very few children who should not be immunized against COVID-19. 

The same limited list of medical reasons to avoid vaccination for adults also applies to children. Parents should talk to their child’s doctor to discuss their concerns. 

Children with a chronic medical condition or living with a weakened immune system can get the vaccine.
These children are at increased risk of developing more serious symptoms if they get COVID-19. For children
on immuno-suppressive therapy, parents should talk to their child’s doctor about when the best time is to
get vaccinated against COVID-19.
