How to Access a Vaccine for 5-11 year olds

 

Children aged 5-11 with no other underlying health conditions will be offered two paediatric (child) doses of the vaccine, with at least 12 weeks between doses. A paediatric dose is smaller than doses given to those aged 12 and over.

If a child has had COVID-19 they will still get extra protection from the vaccine, but they will need to wait 12 weeks before getting vaccinated.

Those 5-11 year-olds who are more at risk from the virus can already get two paediatric (child) doses, eight weeks apart, and their GP or hospital specialist should have been in touch to arrange this, if not parents will be able book an appointment on the National Booking Service from 2 April.

 

From Saturday 2 April,  you can view vaccination centre sites and make an appointment through the National Booking Service or by calling 119. 

 

From Monday 4 April, parents can take children to a vaccination centre, community pharmacy, or GPs offering jabs for this age group. 

 

Vaccinations are also available for 5-11 year olds at some local walk-in sites.

 

For full details and local information please see your invitation letter.
