COVID-19 vaccine for 12 to 15 year olds

We have been asked to distribute consent forms for the Covid-19 vaccinations on behalf of the NHS Immunisations Team, which are being offered to all children aged 12-15. If your child is aged between 12 and 15 they will bring home a consent form this evening. These should be returned to the Pallion or Springwell Dene Office by the end of school on Friday 24th September 2021.

The vaccinations will take place on Tuesday 5th October 2021. The Immunisations Team will also be administering the flu nasal spray vaccination on this date.

Like all school-based vaccination programmes, the School Age Immunisation Service (SAIS) team will be the primary provider of the vaccination programme and will be legally responsible for the delivery of the vaccine.

 

If you have any queries regarding this offer, please contact the Immunisations Team on 0191 402 8179.
