Covid vaccination update

Britain has this week accepted expert advice to extend the offer of a vaccination against Covid-19 to all children aged 5 – 11, ensuring that parents are able to increase their children’s protection against potential future waves of Covid-19 if they wish to do so.   

  • Following a thorough review by the independent medicines regulator, the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisations has approved Pfizer’s paediatric dose of the vaccine as safe and effective for children aged 5 to 11.
  • That is why the NHS will prepare to extend this non-urgent offer of Covid-19 vaccines to all children aged 5 to 11 in April, while continuing to prioritise at-risk children, those living with immunosuppressed people in this age group, and booster jabs for older adults.
  • As we learn to live with Covid-19, it is vital that we continue to strengthen our immune defences, so if you haven’t already – please come forward for your first, second or booster jab.
