This opportunity will be on a walk-in basis meaning no prior booking is required. For your child to receive the vaccine they must be accompanied by a parent who holds parental responsibility for them.
If your child has already received one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in another settling please disregard this letter.
The main purpose of the COVID-19 school age vaccination programme is to provide protection to the children who receive the vaccine and may help to reduce transmission of COVID-19 in the wider population.
This vaccination is free of charge and our highest priority is making it easy for children to access one dose of the vaccine before the winter. During the vaccination delivery we will maintain a range of measures to keep your child safe from COVID-19.
Please be aware that a young person who has had a positive PCR test in the last 28 days should not receive the vaccine on this occasion. They will be eligible after the 28 days has passed. In addition, your child must be aged between 12 to 15 on the date of vaccination to receive the vaccine in this settling.
If you require further information to inform your decision on giving consent for your child to receive the vaccination, please seek further advice from your GP.
Please note that the offer of a COVID-19 vaccine is evergreen and will continue to be available to all those who want to be vaccinated in the future.
