Health officials are planning to offer Pfizer vaccine to high school students from September.
The “preparation tests” documented by NHS officials include a one-time offer for children between the ages of 12 and beyond as the new year begins.
These goals, which have been confirmed by government and NHS sources, are based on timely technical advice from scientists on the vaccination and vaccination coordination committee. But officials are preparing to drop out of school. The source said: “No decision has been made but we are making plans for various events.”
Professor Adam Finn, who sits on the committee, said the decision would depend on the prevalence of HIV infection in the next few days.
