Written by centralfmnews on September 14, 2021
All 12 – 15-year-olds will be offered one dose of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine in Scotland, the First Minister has confirmed.
From Monday drop-in vaccine clinics will open across the country for this age group.
The announcement from Nicola Sturgeon comes the day after all 4 of the UK’s chief medical officers concluded this group should be offered the jag.
On September 27th, appointment letters will be sent out and finally, a vaccination programme will be rolled-out across schools.
Speaking at Holyrood, the First Minister said:
“In addition to the CMO advice on 12 – 15 years olds, we have received today the final JCVI advice on a vaccine booster programme.
“This advice has been broadly endorsed by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. I am grateful to all four Chief Medical Officers for assessing the evidence on this issue with pace and also with rigour.”
