New guidance on COVID-19 jabs for 12 to 15-year-olds

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has recommended new guidelines for vaccination of young people under the age of 18 following COVID-19 infection.

Children aged 12 to 18 years will need to wait for 12 weeks following a positive test for COVID-19 before having their vaccination. This is because there is a small increase in the risk of side-effects.

The risk of serious side-effects if your child has already been vaccinated is very small. If you are concerned please call NHS 111.

If you have already provided consent for your child to be vaccinated against COVID-19 using our online form, and your child has tested positive for COVID since the 28 August, we will need you to re-submit the form to let us know that you understand the new guidelines.

You can also phone, text or have a web chat with us if you're not sure and we can help!
