Abstract :

The title is qestioning about the immune response of children against COVID-19. This question needs attention. It is a fact that COVID-19 clinical symptoms tend to be mainly milder and less severe in children than any other age group. But why? There are many reasons and theories to interpret this phenomenon. This presentation is designed to highlight all possible reasons why children are much resistant to COVID-19. Based on the results of these reasons and important points, people may make a decision whether they will need to vaccinate their kids or not and that is the main point for this presentation.
