LONDON (Reuters) -Britain will offer all 16- and 17-year-olds their first dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, its vaccine advisers said on Wednesday, a move that will give more children protection against the disease before schools return in September. Britain's Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) had initially advised less than two weeks ago that only medically vulnerable children would be offered the vaccine, saying it was taking a precautionary approach. On Wednesday, it updated that initial advice in light of changes in the spread of the disease in younger groups, and the latest safety data that was available.
(Reuters) -The World Health Organization is calling for a halt on COVID-19 vaccine boosters until at least the end of September, its head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Wednesday, as the gap between vaccinations in wealthy and poor countries widens. The call for a moratorium is the strongest statement yet from the UN agency at a time when countries deliberate the need for boosters to combat the fast-spreading Delta variant of the coronavirus. "We need an urgent reversal from the majority of vaccines going to high-income countries to the majority going to low-income countries," Tedros said.

The anti-government protests https://www.reuters.com/world/americas/street-protests-break-out-cuba-2021-07-11 that broke out in Cuba last month are expected to damage the Communist-run island's struggling economy as relations with the United States deteriorate further, but they may quicken the pace of reform, experts said. While President Miguel Diaz-Canel's government quickly snuffed out the unrest, U.S. President Joseph Biden responded by branding Cuba a "failed state" and sanctioned https://www.reuters.com/world/americas/biden-meet-cuban-american-leaders-amid-calls-tougher-action-havana-2021-07-30 the Cuban military and police, slamming the door on hopes of a return to the era of detente begun under former U.S. President Barack Obama.

Sir Keir knows that his words will have extra resonance because of his location.
