The coronavirus vaccine, which is being developed by Russian scientists, will not be available to children this year. Additional trials of the vaccine will need to be performed before use in children.

According to RIA News, such forecasts were given by the director of the Research Center named after Gamaleya Alexander Gintsburg. According to the law, even after the registration of the vaccine for the adult population, the drug must undergo an additional cycle of studies before being used for children.

First, the drug will be tested on immature animals, and then the question of recommending it for children will be decided. At the same time, the fact that children will not receive the vaccine this year is not scary, says Vadim Tarasov, director of the Institute of Translational Medicine and Biotechnology at Sechenov University. According to him, children are not at risk and carry the coronavirus easily.

Russian Minister of Health Mikhail Murashko recently stated that vaccine clinical trials from the coronavirus completed. The documents for registration of the drug are now being prepared. The trials took two groups of volunteers, whose specialists found no serious side effects after applying the drug. Serial production vaccines will begin in September.
