A new report has found tens of thousands of children are suffering from Long Covid, with experts worried children will be left vulnerable if the vaccine roll-out does not expand to include the 12-15 year old age group. Experts have also warned herd immunity cannot be achieved without the young people taking the jab.
"There is no time to waste in getting on with this. We could have had all of this age group [16- and 17-year-olds] vaccinated before September." Said Dr Deepti Gurdasani, an epidemiologist at Queen Mary University London.
