All children aged 12 to 15 are now being offered one dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine through their schools. The roll-out, with support from school nurses, GPs and pharmacists, is being carried out in the same way as children receive other routine vaccinations at school. This aims to protect young people from COVID-19, reduce outbreaks that occur in school and protect friends and family against the virus.
South West London CCG in partnership with Hounslow and Richmond Community Trust (School Immunisation team for Merton) and Merton Council are organising a webinar and Q&A session with an expert panel on the roll out of the COVID vaccination for 12-15 year olds in schools on:
Thursday 7th October at 7pm – 8pm.
The webinar is for parents and carers to ask questions about the process for vaccinations in school, as well as to get more information about the vaccination.
Panel will include from the School Immunisation team, Merton GP, Chief Pharmacist and NHS South West London Clinical Commissioning Group.
