The summer holidays are almost over for teenagers in Northampton and an increasing number will be heading back to the classroom shortly with a Covid-19 vaccine in their arm.

Despite more than 77 percent of the UK’s adult population now being vaccinated against Covid-19, the roll-out is still in the early stages for under-18s.

While Covid symptoms in children are largely asymptomatic or mild, vaccination has opened for those aged 16 and 17.

Teenagers are now being invited to receive their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.

The USA and countries in the EU including France, Spain and Italy are currently offering the jabs to over 12s, but the UK is proving more hesitant.

Vaccinations are currently only being offered to children aged 12 to 15 who are at higher risk from coronavirus or who live with someone who has a suppressed immune system.

Across England, more than half a million under-18s have now been vaccinated against Covid-19, representing 14 percent of the 12-17 population.

In the West Northamptonshire authority region, 3,685 under 18s have received their first dose, according to NHS data.

(Population figures are mid-year estimates from the Office for National Statistics).
