Drop-in covid vaccines are available for Tayside’s teens this week, NHS Scotland has announced. From Monday 12-17-year-olds can attend a clinic for their second dose as long as it has been 12 weeks since their first jab.

Those who are in an at-risk group and aged between 12 and 15 can drop also in for their second dose as long as it has been 8 weeks since their first.

Some young people may still receive an appointment letter for their second dose as these had already been sent before the new directive had been issued.Only one parent or carer should attend with their child to help keep numbers in the centres to a minimum.

Rating action by S&P unwarranted: CBSL
COLOMBO (News 1st); The Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) is perturbed over the announcement by S&P Global Ratings to downgrade Sri Lanka, at a time when the GOSL has diligently lined up adequate funds to repay its maturing foreign debt liabilities and its repeated assurances over the strong commitment to oblige its debt service payments, including the International Sovereign Bond (ISB) maturing on 18 January 2022, the Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) states. The credit rating agency, Standard & Poor’s (S&P) lowered long-term sovereign credit rating on Sri Lanka from ‘CCC+’ to ‘CCC’ on increasing external financing risks on Wednesday (12).The Central Bank of Sri Lanka, issuing a statement in response, states that this move demonstrates repetitive nature in which S&P and other rating agencies acted to initiate rating actions just prior to the settlement of ISB obligations. S&P’s action also fails to recognize the positive developments taking place in Sri Lanka, in an environment in which the entire world is grappling with repeated waves of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CBSL states.The sense of urgency on the part of an internationally recognised rating agency is inconceivable, particularly since S&P was being constantly updated by the Sri Lankan authorities on the latest developments in all sectors of the economy and many measures to shore-up foreign exchange inflows.
