Alder Hey are hosting a Covid 19 vaccination clinic for 5-11 year olds, 12-15 year olds and all adults who are in need of a 1st, 2nd or booster jab.
Instititute in the Park, Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Eaton Road, L12 2AP
The NHS is now recommending that children aged 5 to 11 who are considered at higher risk of serious complications of COVID-19 – or those who are household contacts of an immunosuppressed person – are offered two paediatric doses of the vaccine eight weeks apart.
Children at serious risk from the complications of COVID-19 infection include those with:
* Children with very severely weakened immune systems, may need an extra (third) dose from 8 weeks after their second dose.
The vaccine is also recommended for those children living with people who have a weakened immune system (who are immunosuppressed). This is to reduce the risk of them passing on the infection to their family members.
People over 12 who are immunosuppressed will already have been invited for their vaccinations, Children 5-11 can have the vaccine to help protect them further.
Everyone over 12 who has had a COVID-19 vaccination in England can view their record using the NHS COVID Pass web pages or, for those over 13, through the NHS App.
