NHS Providers responds to JCVI advice on COVID-19 jabs for 16 and 17 year olds

04 August 2021

Responding to recent developments in the COVID-19 vaccination programme, the chief executive of NHS Providers, Chris Hopson said:

"We urge everyone, including 16 and 17 year olds, to have their COVID-19 jab when they are offered it, in line with the advice of Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.

"The UK's vaccination programme has played a pivotal role in tackling the COVID-19 pandemic. Our falling infection, hospitalisation and death rates are testament to this."
