COVID-19 Vaccination for Children Aged 12 to 15
The vaccinations for Brooke Weston Academy have been allocated the 26th and 27th October 2021 by the school immunisation team.
The COVID-19 vaccine is being offered to all children aged 12 to 15 years of age. Your child has the opportunity to receive their first COVID-19 vaccine, and you may be notified about the second dose later.
For more information and to consent please see the letter below:
Please discuss the vaccination with your child and then complete and return the COVID-19 consent form within 72 hours of receipt, so that we can review your child’s information before the scheduled school session. Your child’s health record will be updated with vaccine information if you consent, and your child receives the vaccination as planned.
We are aware that NHS England has advised that children may be offered the opportunity to self-consent, however, NHFT School Age Immunisation Service decided NOT to offer a self-consent option during the school-based session and ONLY children whose parents have given consent for them to receive the vaccine will be called to the vaccination session.
Please note that the Academy is just being used as a facilitator for this and the administration, and application, is provided by the NHS. For more information on COVID-19 and the school age vaccination programme please see the letter from the NHS below.
