Covid vaccination update

There has been a lot in the news in recent days about vaccinations for 12-15 year-olds and third doses of the Covid vaccine so we wanted to share a brief update:

Vaccinations for 12-15 year-olds

The 12 to 15-year-old programme will be administered via school immunisation teams NOT GPs or other vaccination centres.

Third Covid vaccinations

Patients eligible for a third dose of the Covid vaccine will receive a single dose of Pfizer. We do not yet know when vaccines will be supplied but as soon as we know we will set up clinics and inform eligible patients.

As we currently understand it, the following groups will be eligible for third doses:

  • Older residential home patients
  • Adult (over 16) household members of immunosuppressed patients
  • Adults aged 50+
  • Adults aged 18-64 with underlying health conditions
  • All frontline health and social care workers
