VACCINATION of children with the third, booster dose is currently not a practice, not only in our country but also in the world, said today the director of the “Trampoline” Institute Verica Jovanovic, adding that children were vaccinated with two doses and that it will remain so until further notice.
Jovanovic stated that a small number of children in Serbia have been vaccinated, but that vaccination for those aged 12 to 18 continues in our country.
– The vaccines against kovid-19 protect. In our country, the vaccination of children aged 12 to 18 continues, and this process is of course advancing, given that vaccines protect and provide protection against infection that is transmitted by contact and which can certainly be prevented by receiving the vaccine. – said Jovanović for RTS.
Speaking about the epidemic situation in Serbia, he states that the data on the number of infected people in schools, ie in the population of children of that age, show that children can go to school.
– By analyzing the epidemiological situation at this time, we can say that it is completely allowed and acceptable to attend classes in schools. The data that speak about the number of infected people in schools, that is, in the population of children of that age, show that they will go to school tomorrow according to the classic model of teaching – states Jovanović.
He adds that the epidemic situation is being monitored at all times and that decisions will be made in accordance with it.
– In cooperation with the Ministry of Education, our working group, ie the team for schools, continuously monitors the epidemic situation both in schools and districts. If there are any changes in certain classes and classes, the schools are already so used and trained that this type of teaching is organized in accordance with the needs – said the director of the “Trampoline” Institute.
Speaking about the new strain of the omicron virus, discovered in South Africa, he states that it has not entered Serbia at the moment.
– Its basic characteristic is that it can lead to re-infection of persons who have already passed kovid in the previous period, and there are assumptions that it can bypass immunity. Therefore, for that reason, there is a great precaution and it is appealed to the application of all protective measures and to monitor all those people who come from the territory of South Africa and the surrounding countries – Jovanović points out.
