In the UK secondary school pupils will reportedly be offered Covid-19 vaccinations from September under plans being developed by the NHS.
Health service officials are compiling planning documents, which include a measure to offer a single dose of the Pfizer jab to children aged 12 and older when the new school year starts.
Pfizer has said trials of its vaccine in children aged 12 to 15 showed 100% efficacy and a strong immune response.
The vaccination plans are contingent on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) due this summer.
Children are unlikely to fall ill with Covid-19, but are large transmitters of the virus.
