Description

On 3 September, the government advisory group - the JCVI - decided not to recommend the mass vaccination of healthy 12 to 15-year-olds and the final decision was left with the UK's four chief medical officers.

On the Sky News Daily podcast with Sarah Hewson, we hear how parents feel about it as Dominic Wilkinson, a medical ethics professor at the University of Oxford, and chair of the Scientific Advisory Board Professor Jeffery Almond look at the arguments for and against. Plus, family law expert and barrister Gemma Lindfield explains the legalities around children and consent to treatment.
