Covid-19 Children aged 12 to 15 Vaccination

Posted on:

The government has announced that all children aged 12 to 15 in England will be offered one dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine. Invitations for the vaccine are expected to begin week of (20-26 September). The vaccination programme for this age group will be delivered through schools, not via GP practices. Parents and guardians of those eligible will be contacted when it’s their turn to get the vaccine.

Covid-19 booster jabs are expected to be offered to eligible groups in the coming weeks.

The booster jab should be given at least six months after your second dose of the vaccine. The NHS will contact you when it is your turn to get the booster vaccine, so please don’t contact the NHS. If you are invited, it is vital you attend so that you have the best possible protection against Covid-19.
