Responding to the findings, GP and author Dr Philippa Kaye said: ‘I would strongly encourage parents to get their children vaccinated.
‘People are thinking about the risk of Covid, which thankfully is very mild in young children, but children are getting long Covid, which is a real concern.
Most commonly, that manifests itself as fatigue but there are other symptoms too.
‘We should not risk children missing more school because they are unwell.’
Dr Kaye – who said her 14-year-old son has been jabbed and her ten-year-old and six-year-old children would be too – also cited the risk of Paediatric Inflammatory Multisystem Syndrome (PIMS), a new condition that occurs weeks after someone has had Covid and causes swelling throughout the body.
Primary schools have been viewed as high risk settings for the spread of Covid-19.
