Friday’s papers cover the discussion around the UK’s vaccine rollout, as regulators move closer to approving vaccines for young teens in the UK. 

Making the lead on several papers is the government plans to increase taxes to pay for social care.

The ongoing Afghanistan crisis also makes the lead on several papers, suggesting that Britain and its allies have “no coherent plan” to deal with the Afghan refugee crisis. 

Another popular story in Friday’s papers is the new criminal offence for pet abduction, with dognappers facing jail time of seven years as part of the crackdown.

UK Vaccine Rollout

Several papers continue to discuss the vaccine rollout across the UK. The i reports that regulators are moving closer to approving vaccines for younger teens in the UK, after new evidence from the US showed the risks were smaller than previously thought.

The Daily Express says millions of over-50s will start getting booster jabs within weeks. But both the Daily Mirror and the Sun express frustration that scientists are yet to approve vaccinations for both these age groups.

The Mirror says experts fear an autumn wave of Covid cases and asks: “What’s the hold up?”

The Sun has the headline: “More jabbing, less jabber!”

Afghanistan refugee crisis

The Guardian reports a claim that Britain and its allies have “no coherent plan” to deal with Afghan refugees.

Tax increase

Both the Daily Telegraph and the Times lead on what they say are government plans to increase taxes to pay for social care.

Dognappers crackdown 

The new criminal offence for pet abduction is the lead for the Daily Mail. It says that dognappers could be jailed for seven years in what it calls a crackdown on the “heartless trade” in stolen animals.
