Surge in the number of COVID cases among Kids

The Therapeutic Goods Administration has provisionally approved Pfizer's vaccine for all children aged five to 11 years old. More than 2 million Australian children will become eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Almost a staggering 10% of the total infected number of COVID-19 in Australia has been children aged 0-9 years. With the infected number for this aged group closing near to 50,000 in Australia, upon Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)'s approval the Australian Government is making vaccine available for 5-11 years old.

More children are becoming infected with Delta, experts say. This is because it is a more infectious variant: everyone is more likely to be infected by it regardless of the age group which was reflected in the past 6 months where the Delta variant run rampant and almost 14.58% of the infected person were kids aged between 0-9 years old.

Infected 0-9 years old Australians:

  • Before the 1st confirmed Delta variant in Australia: approx. 3500

  • June 2021 - November 2021 (Period when Delta was the main spread): approx. 27000

  • December 2021 (1 month of Omricon variant): 21000

This is evidence that the virus is more infectious. At this moment, while children are unvaccinated, the best way to protect children is to ensure they are using mask.
