Child’s COVID-19 Vaccination
Dear parent or carer,
Child’s COVID-19 vaccination
All young people aged 12 to 15 years are now being offered 2 doses of the vaccine 12 weeks apart.
The Kent and Medway School Immunisation Service will be visiting your child’s school on:
Wednesday 09/02/2022 to administer COVID-19 vaccinations.
Dose 1 is available to all children, aged 12 years and over, who have not been vaccinated yet.
Dose 2 is available to all children who have received Dose 1. There must be an interval of 12 weeks between the Dose 1 and Dose 2. If your child has received Dose 2 in another venue, please do not submit a consent form.
Please use the following link to consent your child for Dose 1 or Dose 2:
Please ensure the form is completed by end of the day Saturday 05/02/2022
We cannot accept late consents and therefore your child may not be vaccinated in school.
Your child is unable to receive the vaccine if they have received a positive test for the Covid-19 virus in the past 12 weeks.
If your child is not aged 12 or over on the day of the session, please do not submit a consent as they are not eligible for the covid vaccine and will not be vaccinated.
