Andover Vaccination Clinic offering vaccinations to 12-15 year olds

The week of January 17, 2022, the Andover Vaccination Center is closed for one week only. Meetings will resume on January 24, 2022. 12-15 year olds who missed vaccination at school can now book through the National Booking Service for an appointment at the Andover PCN Vaccination Center

The NHS offer the following advice on children and Covid vaccination

  • COVID-19 is usually mild in most children, but it can make some children sick.
  • 1 dose of the COVID-19 vaccine provides good protection against your child’s serious illness. But 2 doses give stronger and longer lasting protection.
  • Vaccinating children can also help stop the spread of COVID-19 to other people, including schools.
  • Children can receive a first dose of the vaccine from the age of 12.
  • Most children can receive a 2nd dose from 12 weeks after receiving their 1st dose.
  • If your child has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not at high risk for COVID-19, they must wait 12 weeks before they can receive a COVID-19 vaccine. It starts from the date of his positive PCR test.
  • Most children would have been offered a 1st and 2nd dose of the vaccine at school during school hours. School vaccination teams would have traveled to your child’s school to administer the vaccine.
  • Children will receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for both doses. You can read the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine Patient Information Leaflet on GOV.UK.

As a parent or guardian, you will receive a letter or email with information about when the vaccine will be offered, and you will be asked to give your consent.
