All eligible staff and students aged 12 and over are encouraged to take up the offer of the vaccine, including boosters. Vaccines are our best defence against COVID-19. They help protect young people and adults, and benefit those around them. Vaccination makes people less likely to catch the virus and less likely to pass it on.
The NHS vaccination team are re-visiting the school on the 26th and 27th January to provide second vaccinations for most students and first vaccinations for eligible (now turned 12) Year 7 students as well as any other students who may want a first dose.
Consent forms will be issued by the end of this week and must be returned by Wednesday 19th January so that we can confirm the number of vaccinations required to the School Immunisation Team. Consent forms must be completed even if you have previously provided consent for the first dose due to a change in the NHS processes surrounding this.
You can also:
Book an appointment through the existing online booking system
Find your nearest walk-in vaccination centre and turn up to receive a vaccination
Please read the NHS guidance on both of these pages to ensure that your child is eligible to receive a vaccination should you, or they wish to do so.
