Schoolkids aged 12 could be offered Covid jab in September as part of NHS vaccine plan

Children as young as 12 are set to be offered the coronavirus jab as part of NHS plans to vaccinate children before school starts in September.

The rollout is reportedly being planned for when the school term begins in the Autumn, according to the Sunday Times. The plan is currently awaiting confirmation from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) but documents detailing the different scenarios are being drawn up.

The documents are being compiled by NHS officials and state that children aged 12 and over will be offered the first dose of the Coronavirus vaccine when the first school term begins in the Autumn.
