21st July, 2021 2:43 pm

The chief medical officer will write to the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to urge them to keep the vaccination of all teenagers under review, Nicola Sturgeon has said.

Dr Gregor Smith will approach the committee after it issued advice that only certain groups of children should be given a vaccine.

This includes children aged 12 and over with underlying health conditions, as well as those in the same household as someone who is immunosuppressed.
