Protections for Children

Protections for Children

There is a distinct lack of protections for children in educational settings. Schools are having to rely on natural ventilation without supplemental ventilation technologies which will pose a problem going into winter. It is reassuring that secondary school young people are to continue wearing masks and can choose to be protected with vaccination. The same protections are not offered for Primary aged children. Primary aged children can get very ill from COVID19. Primary aged children can also be hospitalised from COVID19. Primary aged children also get Long covid. Latest data from the CLoCK study suggests up to 1 in 7 infected children will develop Long Covid. Why isnt the Scottish Government prepared to protect the younger age groups?
