Half term Covid-19 vaccinations available for children and young people

Redditch Editorial 19th Feb, 2022   0

FIRST and second Covid-19 vaccinations will be available at Knights Pharmacy in Redditch this  this half term for all 12 to 15-year-olds.

Parents across the country will be receiving invites from the NHS encouraging them to get their 12 to 15 year old vaccinated as Covid-19 is still circulating within communities, especially amongst younger people.

Knights Pharmacy will be offering vaccinations Monday 20th, Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd 9.00am to 6.00pm and Thursday 23rd and Fri 24th 8.00am to 6.00pm.

Booked appointments are available online at www.nhs.uk/covidvaccination




Walk-ins are also welcome.

Dr Ian Tait, GP and Clinical Chair of NHS Herefordshire and Worcestershire CCG said: “Ensuring children and young people can get both doses of their Covid-19 vaccine is an important priority for the NHS.


“This half term offers the perfect opportunity to get your child protected, by booking an appointment online or using one of the walk-in sites available across the counties.”

A minimum of 12 weeks must have elapsed since their first dose before a second dose can be given.

Anyone over the age of 16 who has yet to have their first, second or booster vaccination is also still able to book an appointment for their Covid-19 jab online at www.nhs.uk/covidvaccination.
