NHS COVID Vaccinations – 5-11 Year Olds

All children aged 5-11 continue to be offered vaccination against Covid-19 vaccine and this half-term holiday is good time to get your child vaccinated in time for the summer when cases might increase. 

Two doses of the vaccine (at least 12 weeks apart) should give the child long-lasting protection against serious complications of infection and some protection from mild symptoms. To book an appointment, please visit https://www.nhs.uk/covidvaccination or call 119.

The NHS wants to support you to make an informed choice with more information available here COVID-19: A guide for parents of children aged 5 to 11 (publishing.service.gov.uk)  If you do not know your child’s NHS number you can get it:·        
by checking your child’s personal health record (the red book given to you when your child was born)      
by checking any NHS letters, prescriptions or test results you may have received for your child       
by going to the NHS.UK website
by asking your GP practice to help you
