Scotland, Wales confirms to offer COVID-19 vaccines to children ages 5-11


On Wednesday, the government of Scotland has announced that it would provide vaccines for all children of age between 5 to 11 years.

Wales would adopt the same after the authorities accept the scientists’ draft.


Scottish leader Nicola Sturgeon mentioned that the Scottish authority has been obeying the advice of the UK’s vaccination advisory committee. Although, there is no official announcement by the advisory committee.

Sturgeon further added that the health officials have been talking with the authorities to find the best possible way to discover a safe and secure vaccine for the children.

The statement by the leader came a day after Wales’ authority announced a plan to immunize younger children.

To date, Scotland and Wales are the only United Kingdom that will offer vaccines to the age group of 5 to 11 age.

Currently, Northern Ireland and England administer the COVID-19 vaccine for children below the age of 11, having medical conditions that may cause a severe health risk from the coronavirus.

The four constituencies of the United Kingdom have been at different paces in imposing Covid-related restrictions and administration of vaccines against the virus.


All remaining domestic limitations in England, including the legal restrictions for infected individuals to self-isolate, might be abolished within weeks, as per the announcement by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Most severe restrictions, such as required face masks and vaccine passports for entering nightclubs and other events, have already been repealed in England.

Scotland, on the other hand, has taken a more cautious approach. Indoor public venues still demand face coverings, and nightclubs inspect immunization reports.
