The British government is accepting the advice of scientists to expand its coronavirus vaccination to ages 16 to 17.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid says in a tweet he'll accept the recommendation from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization for healthy youths ages 16-17 to be offered a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. He says he asked the National Health Service to prepare to vaccinate them ``as soon as possible.''
The government's deputy chief medical officer, Professor Jonathan Van-Tam says the expanded rollout should begin within weeks. The JCVI didn't recommend vaccinating under-16s without underlying health conditions, saying it will continue to review its advice.
Other countries in Europe, including France and Germany, are offering vaccines for children aged 12 and older.
