Dear Parent/ Carers
Please see the message below that we have just received today from the NHS regarding the opportunity for your child to be offered their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination. If you wish to participate please use the link below that the NHS have provided.
This autumn all children aged 12 to 15 years are being offered the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination.
Vaccinating children should help to reduce the need for children to have time off school and to reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19 within schools. The COVID-19 vaccination programme in secondary schools will therefore provide protection to children who are vaccinated and help to reduce disruption to face to face education this winter.
Please click on the below to see further information from the Immunisation team and access your child’s electronic consent form.
We kindly request you could complete this before Midnight Sunday 26/09/2021 to support campaign planning
