Children aged 5-11's offered Covid Vaccination during half-term.

All children aged 5 - 11 will be offered extra vaccination sessions against COVID-19 over the half term holiday.

Walk-in clinics can be found near you on our local NHS Staywell website or you can book an appointment via the National Booking Service or by calling 119 for dedicated children’s clinics.

Children aged 5 and over (who turned 5 on or before 31 August 2022) with no other underlying health conditions will be offered 1st and 2nd paediatric (child) doses of the vaccine, with at least 12 weeks between doses.

Children who turned 5 on or after 1 September 2022 can only get a 1st and 2nd dose of the vaccine if they’re either:

• at high risk due to a health condition or because of a weakened immune system

• living with someone who has a weakened immune system.
