An investigation of official ONS and NHS data has revealed that since the Covid-19 vaccine began to be rolled-out to teenagers there has been a 47% rise in the number of deaths due to all-causes among the age group.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) submitted an independent report to the UK Government on July 15th 2021, in which they advised that children and young people aged 12 years and over with specific underlying health conditions should be offered Covid-19 vaccination.
That same report also stated that the ‘JCVI has previously advised COVID-19 vaccination of all adults aged 18 years and over in the UK, and vaccination of some specific groups under the age of 18 years’.
It is not clear when that advice was issued however the report does later state that ‘young people aged 16 to 17 years of age who are at higher risk of serious COVID-19, as currently set out in the Green Book, should continue to be offered COVID-19 vaccination’.
Official NHS data found in the ‘Covid-19 weekly announced vaccinations 01 July 2021 – revised’ which can be downloaded here, and accessed on the NHS website here, shows that between 8th December 2020 and 27th June 2021, 147,123 people under the age of 18 had received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.
