Britain's vaccine advisers said they were not recommending the vaccination of all 12 to 15-year-olds against Covid-19, preferring a precautionary approach in healthy children due to a rare side effect of heart inflammation.

The advice could see Britain pursue a different approach to the United States, Israel, and some European countries, which have rolled out vaccinations to children more broadly.
