COVID-19 vaccination extended to 12 to 15 year olds in England

Following the recommendation of the four UK Chief Medical Officers, children of 12 to 15 years in England who are not at increased risk of infection are now being offered COVID-19 vaccination.  They join those of 16 and 17 and younger children who are at risk of infection in being eligible for vaccination.

The NHS is offering the COVID-19 vaccine to all eligible children and Public Health England has issued a suite of resources about vaccination.  For more see:
