|Parents can now book a COVID-19 vaccination appointment for their 12 to 15-year-old children through the National Booking Service as the NHS pulls out all the stops to protect people ahead of winter. This provides an additional option for parents, alongside school teams who have already vaccinated nearly half a million young people.|
|12-year-old Thomas (pictured right) had his vaccine to protect himself, his family, classmates and teachers. Book your child’s vaccination now.
People aged 16 or over can still book a vaccination appointment through the National Booking Service.
|We are also encouraging pregnant women to get vaccinated. Since July, one in five COVID-19 patients receiving treatment have been expectant mums who are yet to have their first vaccine.
Professor Jacqueline Dunkley-Bent, Chief Midwifery Officer shared a video on the importance of pregnant and breastfeeding women getting the vaccine, and she joined an expert panel to answer questions.
If you cannot book online, call 119 free of charge, between 7am and 11pm, seven days a week to make your appointment. You can also get vaccinated at your nearest walk-in centre without the need for a pre-booked appointment.
