EU health chiefs today approved Covid vaccines for babies, in a move likely to spark huge controversy.
The Bloc’s drug watchdog gave the green light for children older than six months to get either Pfizer or Moderna’s jab.
It comes amid growing fears of another Covid wave this winter.
British authorities have so far held out on approving jabs for infants despite massive pressure, due to concerns that the benefits don’t outweigh any potential risks.
Children rarely get seriously ill with the coronavirus, and the majority are thought to have already been infected.
