Booking a Vaccine for Clinically Extremely Vulnerable Children

The national Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has advised that children aged 12-15 years with specific health conditions are more at risk of becoming seriously ill or being hospitalised if they catch COVID-19 and should receive extra protection by being vaccinated with two doses of the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccination.

All young people aged 12 to 15 in England are now eligible for one dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, following advice from the four UK Chief Medical Officers (CMOs).

As the parent/guardian of a child/children aged 12-15 who is home-schooled, you are now invited to book your child/children’s vaccination at an out-of-school community vaccination clinic.
