Scientists looking at Covid vaccine rollout for 12-year-olds

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has confirmed that the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JVCI) is investigating whether the coronavirus vaccine should be offered to 12-15-year-olds.

"We will be working very closely with schools about encouraging children to be able to take the vaccine, if it's deemed that that's the right scientific and medical decision," he said.
