The vaccination campaign on adolescents aged 12 to 17 divides Europe: EU countries are adopting different strategies. France led the way: on June 15 it opened to vaccines for children. Up to now, a dose for 19.6% in that age group. Spain, like Estonia and Lithuania, has cleared immunization, but the first scheduled doses are in September. In Greece 15-year-olds can book from Thursday 22 June. For those under 25 who get a 150 euro bonus immunized by the government. Germany shows caution, with the vaccine being recommended to children and adolescents only in case of previous illnesses. Similar line in Britain: the drug is licensed but will only be given to children if they are vulnerable or live with immunosuppressed. In Switzerland, vaccinating children is a priority, so much so that minors do not require parental consent.
