OXFORD, England – Britain’s Health Secretary Matt Hancock said on Friday vaccinating children in the United Kingdom against COVID-19 would take priority over donating vaccine doses to other countries around the world.

Britain’s medicine regulator on Friday approved Pfizer/BioNTech’s vaccine for use in 12-15 year olds, but global health bodies warn that if rich countries prioritise low-risk members of their own populations over broadening access globally, they risk disaster.

Asked he would prioritise vaccinating teenagers over more vulnerable people globally, Hancock said: “My first duty as health secretary for the UK is to make sure that the UK is protected and safe.”

  1. I don’t see the point. Children are at very low risk. Some will be jabbed and some parents will not allow it. Teaching unions will use this to create mischief.

    Almost all adults have had one or both jabs. The vaccines work. The government needs to sack SAGE and lift the remaining restrictions.

  2. I don’t see the point.

    The point is that we have a government of English nationalists. There was never a chance of a different decision. A recent opinion poll shows that half of all English Tory party members want the breakup of the UK so that “England can be free”.

    Can you imagine the rage in the Tory newspapers? “Bloody foreigners getting our vaccines! Shame on you Boris!”

  3. Peter, you misread them (me). Hardly anyone would object to elderly people elsewhere being vaccinated before British children.

    I did not intend to bracket you with Johnson and his rag bag of English Nationalists. You have previously expressed generous views on sharing vaccines, but as you know there is nothing about this government that could be described as generous, unless you count its favours to Tory party donors.
