Vaccine plan for children to be announced TODAY with parents to find out if their kid eligible
A VACCINE plan for children is due to be announced TODAY – with parent parents to find out if their child is eligible.
Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi will give parliament an update on how the rollout will work at 3.30pm.
Earlier today he already confirmed that children aged 12 to 17 will be vaccinated – but only if they are in a vulnerable group, or live with someone who is.
Meanwhile The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation are still reviewing evidence around vaccinating all over-12s.
Because of this, the only children who will get the vaccine universally at this stage are 17-year-olds who turn 18 in less than three months.
