Vaccination eligibility for some children aged 12-15
COVID-19 vaccination is available to some children aged 12 to 15 who are either at higher risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19 or live with someone at high risk of catching it. Children aged 12 to 15 can get vaccinated against COVID-19 if either:
- they live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)
- they have a condition that means they're at high risk from COVID-19
Conditions that mean your child may be at high risk and can get vaccinated are:
- a severe problem with the brain or nerves, such as cerebral palsy
- Down's syndrome
- severe or multiple learning disabilities (or they're on the learning disability register)
- a condition that means they're more likely to get infections (such as some genetic conditions or types of cancer)
If your child is eligible for vaccination, you will be contacted by a local NHS service to arrange their appointments.
The surgery will be closed for staff training on the following dates between 12:00-17:00
