What about vaccines for under 18 year olds?

Posted on:

 All children aged 12 years old and over are being offered two doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

If anyone under 18 years old tests positive for COVID-19, they should wait 12 weeks before being vaccinated, because of an extremely small risk of heart inflammation (this doesn’t apply to children in higher risk groups). No vaccine is currently approved for under-12 year olds in the UK.
