Jabs for kids? Mixing vaccines? JVT answers your key Covid concerns

Wednesday, 10 February

In this special episode of the podcast, ITV News presenter Nina Hossain puts a wide range of audience questions to England’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer Jonathan Van-Tam.

Professor Van-Tam, who has won his own loyal audience for his straight-talking guidance throughout the pandemic, addresses concerns over the AstraZeneca vaccine, the extended gap between the two jabs, the impact of mixing vaccines and the likelihood of summer holidays. 


He also answers questions on the prospect of vaccinated people meeting again, the potential to contract Covid-19 after getting the vaccine, why people with mild asthma are not considered a vaccination priority and much more, including the “groundless concerns” over the vaccine’s impact on fertility.

Plus stay listening to the end for an update on the health of Professor Van-Tam’s mum and - utterly trivially but still something many of you wanted to know - will we be seeing him on Strictly Come Dancing?
