青少年打疫苗 英國准了

  Britain decided on Sept. 13th to follow other countries in offering coronavirus vaccines to children 12 and up. The government hopes that expanded vaccination and mild tweaks to social behavior can avert the need for lockdowns in the winter.
  Britain will also begin a COVID-19 vaccine booster program for everyone over 50 and other vulnerable people soon. Prime Minister Boris Johnson hopes the booster program will mean that hospitals can bear the burden of all winter infections without the need for another lockdown.
  A law requiring healthcare workers in France to prove their vaccination against COVID-19 or face suspension without pay comes into effect on Sept.15th. With about 300,000 workers still not vaccinated, some hospitals fear staff shortages will add to their strain.
  After 548 days with restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19, Denmark has lifted all restrictions, including a rule requiring people to present proof of vaccination to enter nightclubs. The decision was taken after more than 83% of eligible people aged above 12 in Denmark had been fully vaccinated.

 英國九月十三日決定仿效其他國家,向十二歲以上兒少提供新冠疫苗,希望擴大疫苗接種、微幅調整社交行為,避免冬季封城。
 英國同時即將針對五十歲以上及其他體弱民眾,展開新冠疫苗加強劑計畫。首相強生希望加強劑計畫可以讓醫院承受得了冬季期間的確診病人,不必再次封城。
 法國一項強制所有醫護人員提供疫苗施打證明的法令,在九月十五日生效,如果提不出證明,將會面臨停職停薪。法國約有三十萬醫護員工仍未接種疫苗,部分醫院擔心人手短缺會造成更大負擔。
 丹麥在頒布新冠肺炎防疫規定五百四十八天之後,解除了所有相關限制,包括進入夜店必須提出疫苗接種證明的規定。丹麥十二歲以上的人有百分之八十三都已經完整接種疫苗,丹麥當局才做出這項決定。
