January 2022 Update

You will find a PDF copy of our latest trust-wide risk assessment at the bottom of this page.  It is titled V9.

What to do if your 12-15 year-old child missed their appointment at school to receive their Covid vaccination

If for any reason your child missed the opportunity to receive their vaccination at school, or were declined their vaccination because they tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 12 weeks, you have the following alternative options. You will need to accompany your child to any venues offering the vaccination to give consent:

Booking vaccination appointments online

You can book your child's 1st dose online from the day they turn 12. You can usually book their 2nd dose from 24 hours after they had their 1st dose. You'll be offered appointment dates from 12 weeks after their 1st dose. Book a COVID-19 vaccination appointment

Getting the vaccine at a walk-in vaccination site

Your child can get a 1st dose at a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site from the day they turn 12. They can get a 2nd dose if it's been 12 weeks since their 1st dose. Find a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site


September 2021 Update

Welcome back! In line with government guidelines masks are no longer mandatory. We continue to review our Covid measures and risk assessment on a regular basis.
