We recently shared information regarding the booking process of COVID-19 vaccinations for students aged 16+ which you can find here.
A single dose of the COVID-19 vaccination is also being offered to students aged 12-15 in the Academy. We have not yet received the date of the vaccination from Public Health, but are sharing the relevant information for you and your child to make an informed choice surrounding consent.
The vaccination is free of charge and the purpose of the vaccination programme is to provide protection to the children who receive the vaccine; it may also help to reduce transmission of COVID-19 in the wider population.
Vaccinations will be carried out by the NHS Immunisation Team. If you have any questions, please use the contact details for Vaccination UK on the bottom of the consent form. Please do not contact the Academy, as we are simply a venue in this process, our staff will be unable to answer your questions.
By consenting to the vaccine, you will be helping to play your part in reducing the risk of COVID-19 spreading.
