Prof Adam Finn, Professor of Paediatrics, University of Bristol, said:

“As expected, MHRA have authorised the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine from the age of 12 years as FDA and EMA have done previously.  This permits the vaccine to be used in this age group but does not decide whether or not to do so and, if it is decided to do so, which adolescents to offer it to and when.
