LONDON (UK) – Teenagers in Britain aged 16 and 17 will be given the approval for COVID-19 vaccine within days before they head back to schools and colleges in September, The Sun reported3 on Tuesday.

UK’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation is poised to give the nod as soon as the weekend, the report added.
