The makers of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine have asked the European Medicines Agency to approve its jab for use in children aged 12 to 15.

Pfizer and BioNTech say their request is based on a study of more than 2,000 adolescents that showed the vaccine to be safe and effective.

Professor Brian MacCraith, the head of Ireland's Covid vaccine taskforce, says this could be a very important development.
