UK quietly bans Covid vaccines for children under 11

Apparently suddenly appointments for the second jab are being cancelled, and some parents are “distraught”.

I’ve just been made aware that children turning 5 from this month onwards are no longer eligible for the covid vaccine!

See snapshot from the NHS Green Book. I received a distraught email from a parent this morning whose child’s vax appt had been cancelled.

What kind of medicine do you offer to all children aged 5 – 11 as a “one off program” with a near-secret end date?

Apparently the end was a preplanned thing, a mere footnote in February that no one noticed. Was this a premade PR “out-clause” that was there from the beginning and which could be turned off or on as it suited? If so, we have to admire the politico-marketing. If things went badly, it’s a clever way of being able to cancel the program without appearing to cancel it. “Nothing to see here Ladies and Gentlemen“. It’s just a footnote clause that doctors didn’t know about.

Presumably, if there were no issues of concern they would have quietly extended the program.
