Guardian, 14 Sep 2021
Children aged 12 to 15 can be offered Covid vaccinations, the UK’s four chief medical officers have decided, saying the likely impact in reducing disruption to schools meant such a plan could be clinically justified.
UK chief medical officer Dr. Chris Whitty said at a press conference on Monday that he "wanted to stress that this is an offer" and that the final decision is with government ministers of each of the four nations.
