Getting the vaccination is the best possible protection against getting seriously ill or hospitalised from the virus and the NHS want to make it as easy as possible for those aged 12 to 15 and their families to get this extra protection as quickly as possible. There are now multiple ways for this group to get the vaccine:
- The programme is continuing in schools across South West London, in line with other schools-based vaccination programmes
- Appointments for 12 to 15 year olds can be booked using the National Booking system.
- Walk in centres across Merton are offering vaccinations to 12 to 15 year olds meaning that you don’t need to book an appointment, you can simply walk-in on the day. You can check here to find out where 12 to 15 year olds can walk in and specific clinic details. The times are updated weekly.
Here are the 11 key questions Merton parents are asking about the COVID-19 vaccine for 12 to 15-year-olds – taken from our Q&A webinar attended by more than 200 parents and carers.
