COVID-19 Vaccinations

 

In September 2021, children aged 12 – 15 were offered a COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as the flu vaccinations at school. This vaccine was given with an injection to a child’s upper arm.  Parents were able to choose to consent to their child having both flu & Covid, one, or neither, of the vaccines.

 

Community Clinics for COVID-19 Immunisation Programme for children aged 12 - 15

Sirona are now running community catch-up clinics for children aged 12 – 15 who were unable to receive their vaccine in school for any reason. If you would like to make an appointment for your child to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at one of our community based clinics please click on the link below to book an appointment and, if necessary, you can complete the consent form. Please note, appointments are regularly refreshed throughout the day - if you cannot find a convenient booking, please try again later.

Whilst attending the COVID vaccination appointment your child will also be offered the Flu vaccination and you can give consent while you are there if you so wish: https://imms.sirona-cic.org.uk/covid19/2021/rebook
