The Sefton Immunisation Team recently visited school to deliver COVID-19 vaccinations to students aged between12-15.
If your child missed this session in school, an alternative offer is now available for children aged 12-15 via the NHS COVID-19 Vaccination Booking System at: www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by calling 119.
This will enable your child to access a pre-bookable appointment at a local vaccination clinic at a time to suit you.
All children aged 12 to 15 are being offered a 1st dose of a COVID-19 vaccine this autumn, including children who turn 12 on the date of vaccination. Although COVID-19 is usually mild in children, it can make some children unwell. 1 dose of a COVID-19 vaccine gives good protection against your child getting seriously ill. Vaccinating children can also help stop the spread of COVID-19 to other people, including within school.
