U.K. to Expand Covid-19 Shots to 5 to 11-Year-Olds Most at Risk

The U.K.’s health service will start to vaccinate children between the ages of five and 11 who are most at risk of Covid-19 from this week. 

Children who are particularly vulnerable or who live with someone whose immune system is suppressed will be able to get their first dose, according to an NHS statement. Around 500,000 children will be eligible.
