Vaccinations for 5-11 year olds
The JCVI has recommended that Covid-19 vaccinations should be offered to all 5-11 year olds on a ‘non urgent’ basis.
This is in addition to clinically at risk children in this age group or those living with someone who is immunosuppressed, who are already being offered the vaccination.
In line with the government’s directive, the NHS will develop plans for offering vaccinations to all 5-11s from April. Details will be shared once confirmed so please wait to hear rather than contacting your GP or other NHS service. They will not have any further information until plans have been completed and it may prevent someone who needs help from getting through.
Please see the JCVI statement for further information.
