NHS officials in England said the health service is ready to extend the availability of vaccines quickly when and if expert recommendations on who should get them change, as a report suggested plans to give the Covid vaccine to children as young as five up to 11 years old can become a reality next year.
Covid-19 vaccines are licensed in the UK only for children aged 12 and over and any decision to extend them to children under 12 will be taken by the Regulatory Agency for Drugs and Health Products (MHRA).
According to a report in the Sun newspaper, the leaked proposals suggest that health chiefs are preparing to use the drug for children aged five to 11 in the spring.
An unnamed source told the Sun that plans for who gets the stroke could change, adding that parents’ requests for permission to vaccinate young children “are on time”.
