Research from Sky News has revealed that young people have been the hardest hit by the Pandemic.

16 to 17-year-olds are the most likely to have lost their job and also most likely to be furloughed.

Since the start of this year 16 to 29-year-olds have consistently reported worse mental health which continues despite the lifting of lockdown.

Covid jabs offered to 16 and 17-year-olds in UK

The NHS has been asked to offer all 16 and 17-year-olds Covid jabs as soon as possible, the health secretary said today. Sajid Javid said the roll-out should begin this month.

In Scotland, where schools go back in two weeks, 16-year-olds can book from this Friday.

So why did the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation change its advice, and is it too late to avoid a surge this autumn?

BREAKING: All 16 and 17-year-olds to be offered COVID-19 jabs

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has recommended that all 16 and 17-year-olds be given a first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine against COVID-19.

The JCVI says it is confident that young people will be given around 80% protection against hospitalisation after they are given the first dose.

It is hoped vaccinating younger people will help stem any possible autumn surge of COVID-19.

Professor Wei Shen Lim, the chair of the JCVI, explained their reasoning behind the decision.
