RPS supports Covid-19 vaccination programme for under 16s

Royal Pharmaceutical Society has expressed its support for the government’s Covid-19 vaccination programme for under 16s that began today, and sought advice on further dosage.

Children in the age bracket of 12 and 15 years will be offered a single shot of the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine following the government’s acceptance of the UK Chief Medical Officers’ (CMO) recommendation.

The programme will cover around three million children in this age group.

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) will further advice on any second doses after analysing more data.
