Covid-19 UK: Jabs rollout for kids aged 12-15 starts in schools.

Coronavirus latest: THE rollout of Covid jabs for kids aged 12-15 has started today across the UK with up to three million kids being eligible for the shot.

The programme will be delivered primarily through schools up and down the country.

So far in the UK more than 48.5 million people have had a first dose of a Covid jab - with 44.4 million now having had a second.

Booster jabs are also being rolled out in order to target waning immunity in those who had their vaccines during the first stages of the rollout.

Kids getting their vaccines will receive a single dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.

Quinn Foakes, 15, today became the first schoolkid to get his jab as part of the rollout.

He was given the Pfizer vaccination at Belfairs Academy secondary school in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.

Jabs are being delivered by local School Age Immunisation Services, as is the case with the flu and HPV vaccines.
