“Open Letter calling on PM Boris Johnson not to commence a mass roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccine to children.
Last week the MHRA approved the Pfizer vaccination for use in 12 – 15 year olds. In the coming days politicians will decide whether to roll out the mass vaccination programme to this age group. (Individual children at very high risk can already receive vaccination on compassionate grounds). Press have reported that, in a break from custom, the JCVI are likely to offer a menu of options to the PM rather than making an express recommendation.
As of today close to ten thousands people have signed our open letter, including prominent scientists, celebrities, teachers, lawyers, grandparents and of course parents.
We must grow that number and make our voices heard.
