Last month the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) and the UK Chief Medical Officers provided advice on the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination programme to 12-15 year olds, and we've summarised this advice.

It's now been about 18 months since the start of the pandemic, and it's time, says our CEO Jo Revill, to take stock and think about how the vaccination of children and young people, and other public health meausres, have evolved.

In this 30-minute podcast, Jo and Camilla talk about this multifaceted issue. They discuss the need for transparent information, how consent works and what the College is doing to represent the insights of both paediatricians and young people.
