All children aged 12 to 15 will be offered a 1st dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Parents /carers will get a letter with information about when the vaccine will be offered.
Most children will be given their vaccine at school.
Some children are being offered two doses of the vaccine if either:
- they live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)
- they have a condition that means they're at high risk from COVID-19
