As children aged 12-15 in England become eligible for a second dose of a Covid vaccine, French health authorities have just approved a first jab for five to 11-year-olds, APA reports citing BBC.

France's Haute Autorite de Sante has suggested parents who wish for their young children to get a vaccine can now do so, the Reuters news agency reports.

Last week France started vaccinating children with certain medical conditions, while getting ready to roll out vaccination to all children within the age group once the move was given the green light.

Lise Alter, one of the doctors in charge of risk evaluation of new drugs in France, says: "With the arrival of the Omicron variant, which is more contagious than the Delta variant, we can expect an increase in severe forms in children without pre-existing health conditions."
