Sky News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: ‘No decision made on jabs for teens’ says vaccines minister” – below is their description.

Vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi says the government “have not made any decisions” on whether to give 12 to 15-year-olds the coronavirus jab.

Speaking to Trevor Phillips On Sunday, Mr Zahawi said parents of children in this age group will need to give their consent if a rollout takes place.

He also confirmed that vaccine passports will be introduced for large venues – and it is hoped this will prevent further closures this winter.
