  • Vaccinations for youngsters with specific medical conditions

    Created: 24/01/2022

    Children aged five to 11 years old who have specific medical conditions which place them at greater risk from COVID-19 will are now being invited for their first vaccination.

    Parents do not need to book an appointment for them online as they will be contacted directly by Health Boards.

    Those five to 11 year olds who are household contacts of people with immune suppression will be invited to receive their vaccination in due course.

    Letters will also be sent to young people aged 12-15 who are at particular clinical risk from COVID-19 inviting them for a booster jag, 12 weeks after their last primary dose.

    Meanwhile, second doses are now available for all 12 to 15 year olds who had their first dose at least twelve weeks previously. This cohort can book an appointment online at NHS Inform or go to a drop-in centre. Parents and carers are welcome to accompany them.

    Any 16 or 17 year old can book a booster online for 12 weeks after their second dose. They can also visit any drop-in centre.
