NHS opens online COVID-19 vaccination bookings for 12-15 year olds

Parents will be able to book COVID-19 vaccinations online for their 12-15 year old children from the end of Friday 22 October with appointments available as soon as 23 October, the NHS has announced.

People will be able to go online and check the National Booking Service to see if their local site has appointments to vaccinate children and young people, as the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme continues at pace.

The booking service will provide an additional option for parents to book a vaccine for their child, alongside the schools programme which has already vaccinated nearly half a million young people and visited thousands of schools.

If a child has already been invited through their school, they do not need act on their invite unless parents wish to get their child vaccinated outside of school.
