|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
