Coronavirus vaccine to be offered to children aged 12-15 in UK

All children in UK aged 12 to 15 are to be offered a single dose of a Covid vaccine.

Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi said invitations for the Pfizer-BioNTech jab will begin next week after advice from the UK's chief medical officers that the vaccination will reduce disruption to education.

"We know vaccinations are our best defence against this virus," Mr Zahawi said. "They have built a vast wall of defence for the British people."
