Stephen Morgan comments on the JCVI’s new vaccination advice for children
Stephen Morgan MP, Labour’s Shadow Schools Minister, commenting on the JCVI’s new advice to offer vulnerable primary school age children a Covid vaccine, said:
“The Government needs to act on this decision now.
“With the Omicron variant spreading fast, there’s an urgent need to get these jabs in to arms. The Government has taken its eye off the ball on vaccinations for children and young people, with just 47% of eligible children aged 12-15 vaccinated.
“Labour has called for a Christmas vaccine guarantee to offer every eligible 12–15-year-old a vaccination before they go back to school.”
