Earlier on Wednesday, England’s Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty said any child aged between 12 and 15 who doesn’t get vaccinated will catch Covid at some point.
He was facing questions from MPs on the Education Committee about the inclusion of children in the Government’s Covid-19 vaccination programme.
He told MPs: “Let’s make an assumption that the great majority of children who’ve not currently had Covid-19 are going to get it at some point over the next period.
“It won’t be necessarily in the next two or three months but they will get it sooner or later.”
But addressing the Commons education committee, Prof Whitty added: “Vaccination will reduce that risk.”
