Allow Covishield 2nd Dose After 4 Weeks, Kerala High Court Orders Centre
As Kerala battles a surge in Covid cases, the High Court today ordered the Centre to allow a second dose of Covishield after a four-week gap instead of 12 weeks. The government was also asked to make changes to the CoWIN app to enable a reduced dose gap for "those who want it".

The order is limited to vaccines that people get from private sources, not the Centre's free shots. The court said the question was whether for private vaccinations, people were entitled to choose between "early protection or better protection".

Britain Distributing Coronavirus Vaccines To Climate Talks Delegates
Britain has started shipping COVID-19 vaccines to delegates attending global climate talks it is hosting next month who cannot access them at home, with the first shots to be delivered next week.

The COP26 conference, postponed from last year, takes place from October 31 to November 12 in Glasgow.

Typically delegates from more than 190 countries attend the annual talks, but with many countries still grappling with the novel coronavirus, climate and health experts have said poorer nations struggling to access COVID-19 vaccines could find sending delegates difficult.

"Vaccines are shipping and vaccination will begin next week and through mid-September before second jabs in October well ahead of COP26," British COP26 envoy John Murton said on Twitter on Friday.

UK Panel Against Giving COVID-19 Jabs To Healthy Children Aged 12-15
The UK government's independent advisory body on vaccines said Friday it would not recommend jabbing all 12- to 15-year-olds against coronavirus, arguing the benefits were "too small".

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), a panel of experts which advises ministers, has been weighing the issue after numerous other countries began giving the jabs to young teens.

It has previously recommended giving approved Covid-19 vaccines to all 16- and 17-year-olds but only to 12- to 15-year-olds who have underlying health conditions that make them more vulnerable to the virus.
