Covid: Decision to jab children ‘entirely up to parents’

The determination to vaccinate wholesome 12-15 year-olds must be “fully up to dad and mom”, Prof Anthony Harnden has mentioned.

The deputy chairman of the JVCI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation), advised BBC Breakfast that folks wanted to perceive the dangers and advantages and “make up their very own minds whether or not they supply consent or not”.

He mentioned the problem was not “black and white” in contrast to adults getting the coronavirus vaccine.

His feedback got here after the JVCI mentioned it could not advocate a rollout for 12-15 year-olds, as the advantages on well being grounds alone have been “marginal”.
