Vaccine update: Out of school clinics for 12- to 15-year-olds to open

Vaccination appointments for children aged 12-15 are now able to be booked, outside of schools.

Appointments can be booked through the National Booking System or by calling 119.

The move to offer vaccines for this age group as part of the national programme is to give the opportunity to be vaccinated to those who may have missed it through their school.

Appointments will be offered outside of school hours – including evenings and weekends, as well as during the day while schools are on half term.

For all times and locations, please visit the National Booking System or call 119.

Advice for 12-15-year-olds and their parents/guardians

It is important parental consent is given before the vaccine can be administered. The NHS has produced a series of resources to help children and young people make decisions with their parents or guardians.

All vaccinations will be given by staff specifically trained in delivering vaccines to children and young people.

As with all other age groups, we encourage all people to get vaccinated – whether first, second or booster dose – as soon as it is offered to them.
