COVID-19 Vaccinations

 

Children aged 12 – 15 will be offered a COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as the flu vaccinations; this vaccine will be given with an injection to a child’s upper arm. You can choose to consent to your child having both flu & Covid, one, or neither, of the vaccines. If you consent to your child having both vaccines, they will be given at the same time.

 

There are separate consent forms for the flu vaccine and COVID-19 vaccine. Link to the COVID-19 consent form:
