The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Matt Hancock: Vaccinating children will be positive for their education” – below is their description.
The Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine was approved for use in children aged 12 to 15 but experts have flagged ethical concerns of issuing jabs to a group that is classified as being at low risk from Covid-19.
The Health Secretary said he would be considering advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to decide on the “right approach” before making a final decision.
Hancock said there were “plenty of good reasons” for inoculating children, despite admitting it was “very rare” that young people are affected “very negatively” by coronavirus infection.
