The NHS is now offering COVID-19 vaccinations to all children aged 5-11, in line with the latest advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). As well as protecting children against serious COVID infection and long covid, this will reduce the risk of children passing on the infection to others.

We will be contacting parents of our patients in this age group over the next few weeks to offer them appointments at special vaccination clinics. Please wait to hear from us and do not contact the practice. Alternatively if you prefer, you can book an appointment at selected vaccination centres and community pharmacies by visiting www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or by calling 119, free of charge.
