COVID-19 booster jabs available to 16 and 17-year olds from tomorrow
Today it was announced that, from Monday, 16 and 17-year-olds will be able to receive a Covid-19 booster jab – ensuring they can top-up their immunity this winter and keep themselves and their friends safe.
- We must do everything we can to keep schools, sixth forms and colleges open for face-to-face teaching, and booster jabs are our best defence against Covid-19.
- That is why, from tomorrow, people aged 16 and 17 will be able to book their boosters online or attend a walk-in centre – with those who received their second jab at least three months ago, and who have not tested positive in the last 12 weeks, initially eligible.
- This will help to protect young people and ensure that they can continue to receive face-to-face teaching at their school, sixth forms and colleges.
