China has decided to administer the Covid-19 vaccine to children aged between 3 years to 17 years. It is the first country in the world to authorise vaccination to kids as young as 3. So far, all the countries including India are vaccinating people above 18 years.

A few countries started clinical trials on the children and no one started the trials on three-year-old kids. The China government gave a green signal for administering Sinovac Biotech's vaccine to children. The WHO had already given approval to Sinovac vaccine for emergency use. The efficacy rate of Sinovac is above 50 per cent.
