    Vaccines are turning the tide in the pandemic in Europe and the US. Attention has turned from adults to children. Some say they should get the jab too. But shouldn’t the limited supply of vaccines go to people in poorer countries?

    After all, kids rarely develop severe cases of COVID. Some parents have voiced safety concerns. Pharma firms say the shots are safe for minors.

    Is it time to vaccinate the young?
