Covid vaccine update: 12-15 year olds set to receive one dose of Pfizer jab – latest

The UK Government will shortly set out its decision on whether to routinely vaccinate 12 to 15-year-olds against coronavirus after it was recommended by the four UK Chief Medical Officers (CMOs), a Department of Health and Social Care spokesperson says.

The government is expected to follow the advice, which means about three million children could be eligible for the jab.

It is expected the vaccinations will be given through schools.

The CMOs have asked for the JCVI now to look at whether second doses should be given to children and young people aged 12 to 15 once more data comes through internationally.
