This autumn, all children aged 12 to 15 are being offered the one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, following advice from the UK’s four Chief Medical Officers.
Vaccinating 12- to 15-year-olds should help to reduce the risk of complications, reduce time out of education, and reduce the spread of Covid-19 within schools.
Children will be offered the Pfizer vaccine, which is the vaccine approved for children and young people over 12 years of age. This follows a thorough review of the safety, quality and effectiveness of the vaccine in this age group. Very few healthy children and young people with Covid-19 go on to have severe disease.
Are you a parent of a 12-15-year-old?
Join one of our upcoming webinars to ask your questions about children age 12 - 15 now being eligible to receive their Covid-19 vaccine in schools. You can join any one of the webinars below, which are at a range of different days and times throughout October to give you the opportunity to attend, whatever your daily schedule looks like.
